The fact that Creekside Plaza was designed for different use groups presented its own set of construction nuances. A cooling tower with water source heat pumps was used for heating and cooling of the first floor retail areas. Three variable volume roof top units served the floors to be commercial office space and each condominium (total of 11 units) had individual split system mechanical units. Various mechanical, plumbing and electrical chases were design into the shell building to accommodate the build out of all the different user groups.
Creekside Plaza is currently the only building in downtown Frederick with a sky bridge connection to a City parking deck. Once again, Warner Construction contributed to a redesign that resulted in a connector that was approved by the Historic Preservation Commission and cost savings to the project. The construction of this connection required close coordination with the City and ultimately resulted in a prominent feature of the building.
Creekside Plaza represents a true definition of a mixed-use building. Through outstanding communication, coordination, management and experience, Warner Construction was instrumental in making this project not only a reality, but a great success for all involved parties.
