Park Plaza HOA

Planning Services

When Park Plaza Homeowners Association envisioned a façade and common area upgrade project to modernize their buildings and improve aesthetics and property values, they retained Stonemark for planning services. The Santa Monica complex, built in 1975, is comprised of 88 units in two six-story towers, over two levels of subterranean parking. The repair concept included upgraded façades, balcony railings, relocated pool, exterior hardscape and landscape, and interior lobby and common area improvements. Stonemark first coordinated a market analysis and feasibility study to determine whether improvements were possible and cost-effective. Working with the architect, structural engineer and the City of Santa Monica, we defined project options, developed a detailed project plan and total project budget to create the most viable and cost effective project.

Our HOA retained Stonemark Construction Management to assess, plan, specify and manage repairs to our roofing. Their experience became immediately apparent. When we received proposals from contractors in response to our Invitation to Bid, the bids were not favorable, jeopardizing our project. In order to secure proposals closer to budget, Stonemark had extensive discussions with the contractors. They provided several options on the scope of work, searched for alternative materials, analyzed savings ideas, and suggested flexible terms on warranty period and construction duration. Due to Stonemark’s additional efforts, we received two good proposals. In short, Stonemark thought “outside the box” on many issues in order to enable us to perform our project within our budget. Given Stonemark’s experience and knowledge and the tremendous value they added to our project, we would not hesitate to retain them again in the future and recommend them wholeheartedly.
