The Legacy Paver Group was selected to install pavers as part of the modernization of several Bay Area Shopping Centers including Bay Plaza in Emeryville, Napa Town Center, Red Hill Shopping Center and the Town Center of Corte Madera.
As part of a comprehensive reconstruction project and facelift at the Town Center of Corte Madera, The Legacy Paver Group was selected to remove all old and dated pavers throughout the shopping areas and install new pavers in multiple designs, paver styles and colors.
“This was a dream come true for a designer like myself,” says Hayley “It’s something I could really sink my teeth into. It was a challenging project involving multiple sub-contractors working around and on top of each other. And of course we were working around shops and restaurants whose owners and managers were looking forward to the end results, but were not particularly happy to have us on their doorstep.”
The design provided by Landesign Landscape Architects was well thought out, modern and intricate, which required experience and attention to detail. Each section provided its own challenges, from multiple color accents and patterns and inlays to specific grid layouts and color transitions. In addition to the patterns and colors, Legacy was responsible for grading corrections and modernizing the drainage inlets.
In addition to day shifts, the Legacy crew worked multiple night shifts in order to minimize impact on the tenants during this extensive construction project.
The scope of the reconstruction project included new outdoor spaces, water features and sculptures, dog drinking stations, and new landscaping and building facades.
The Port of Oakland has had thousands upon thousands of pavers installed over the years. The pavers are over 4 inches thick and can withstand the weight of trucks, containers and cranes. The Legacy Paver Group has been contracted to repair and maintain the pavers to ensure the busy Port can keep moving.
The Bay Model in Sausalito is one of the Bay Area’s Feature attractions, especially for school children. The decking around the space was dated and in need of repair. The owners, The Army Corps of Engineers, decided to replace the entire deck with pavers. Hayley worked closely with the General Contractor and ACOE to choose a local paver manufacturer, McNear Brick and Block in San Rafael, and a design that would complement the space. We demolished and removed all the old decking and installed an entire drainage system before installing the base and pavers.
In addition to the field pavers, Hayley recreated the ACOE logo in pavers and had them installed at various points throughout the space.
The Legacy Paver Group was selected to install these pavers as part of a complete renovation of the Red Hill Shopping Center in San Anselmo. In addition to storefront changes, the property owners wanted to create inviting spaces for customers and thus drive more traffic for the tenants.
All the dated concrete was removed and replaced with brick-style pavers for both vehicular and pedestrian use. A meeting place with firepit was created where visitors can relax and enjoy food and drinks from the various restaurants and cafes.
The roof deck at the AT&T Campus in San Ramon is a popular area for employees and guests to hold meetings, get coffee and eat lunch. The space was covered in mortar-set stones, and over time the joints became loose and caused water issues for the office spaces below. As part of the waterproofing repair, the engineers decided that a sand-set solution would be better for future maintenance of the waterproofing underneath.
The Legacy Paver Group removed all the existing bricks and stones, then returned to install the pavers after the new waterproofing had been installed and tested. The biggest challenge here was getting all the materials up to the second and third stories, all while being careful not to disturb the beloved geese who live in the gardens all around the campus.
