Berman Enterprises is designing its two-building apartment project to promote social interactions among residents.

By Tim O’Connor

Transit-oriented development is one of the hottest trends in building today. Berman Enterprises believes it has the perfect mix of suburban living and regional access with its latest project, The Remy, a $165 million mixed-use development in Prince George’s Country, Md., just east of Washington, D.C.

The transit options available to residents are one of the most appealing aspects of the location. In addition to the New Carrollton train station, the site sits near the intersection of I-495 and the John Hanson Highway. “[Residents will] have access to all of D.C. plus the whole mid-Atlantic, East Coast corridor from this site,” Partner Kevin Berman says.

Work on the latest luxury high-rise to grace South Florida is now in the home stretch. Hyde Resort & Residences is a 40-story condo/hotel tower with 407 units in Hollywood Beach, Fla., just 50 feet off the Atlantic shoreline. Construction crews and general contractor John Moriarty & Associates are moving rapidly as they prepare to open the first 30 floors by the end of November. The remaining 10 floors will follow later this year.

Work on Hyde Resort began in September 2014, giving it a timeline of just over two years. “We’re always very aggressive with our construction schedules,” Senior Project Manager Ron Siemens says.

PlatinumPlatinum Exteriors’ niche is to rehab or build high-quality waterproof exteriors on new or existing construction on budget and on time.

By Russ Gager

Although general contractors and building owners do not expect the exteriors installed by Platinum Exteriors to be literally platinum, they find the company’s waterproofing capabilities and the appearance and quality of its jobs to be as good as gold.

General/Regional Manager Ryan Green estimates that approximately 70 percent of Platinum Exteriors’ business is with repeat customers. “Our company is about building relationships, not just doing a single project,” he says.

Drahota picDrahota’s success in the multifamily market and elsewhere stems from its strength in preconstruction services, it says.

By Chris Petersen

When Terry Drahota received his degree in finance from Colorado State University in the early 1970s, he realized he didn’t want to move to the East Coast and spend the rest of his life crunching numbers. Not wanting to leave the Rocky Mountains region he had grown up in, Drahota decided to stay in Colorado and took up carpentry to support himself.

Soon, Drahota began to build houses and founded the construction company that bears his name. Upon receiving a $1 million project to build at a ski resort in Breckenridge, Colo., the company had officially entered the big time.

Since 1973, Drahota has built hundreds of successful projects, many of them in the multifamily residential sector. Drahota says the company has between 800 and 1,000 apartment units under construction at any given time. In 2015, the company merged with Bryan Construction, and Drahota says the match made perfect sense because Bryan was looking to expand into multifamily and Drahota was looking to expand into Bryan’s area of expertise, commercial and government construction. Today, Drahota continues to uphold its reputation as one of Colorado’s most successful and sought-after multifamily contractors, but the added expertise of Bryan has allowed it to seek out projects on the commercial side, as well.

By Jim Harris

Live Oak Contracting anticipates contracting more than $100 million worth of projects this year, up from its 2015 total of $79 million. What makes that increase and the Jacksonville, Fla.-based general contractor’s overall ability to secure projects even more impressive is the fact that 2016 is only its third full year in business.
