Buch Construction: Building Big

The past few years have seen Buch Construction expanding its horizons, and the industry is taking notice.

A recent Construction Today article focuses on The Vine, Buch’s multifamily housing project in Laurel, Md. “The company is best known for constructing base buildings and retail structures,” notes the magazine, but goes on to explore how Buch is also making its name with large multifamily housing projects.

The Vine (above) is the newest such project, set to open in early 2018 with 283 units. It comes on the heels of the Shady Grove Metro apartment complex, which Buch completed in 2016, at nearly 450,000 SF with 418 residential units, parking garage, pool, lounge, cyber cafe, and fitness center.

The Vine’s 4-story, 536,742 SF residential building features top-of-the-line amenities, materials, finishes and equipment. A mix of one, two, and three bedroom apartment units range from 732–1662 SF, all with direct access to a 5-level/504 stall precast concrete parking garage. Since the parking structure is incorporated into the building design, all resident parking spaces can be accommodated in a structure that consumes 80% less impervious land area, offering a huge benefit environmentally to the project and to the overall community.

Construction Today credits Buch’s history of “working with clients for the long term, creating a symbiotic partnership for growth.”

“Buch Construction’s relationships with clients and subcontractors have always been more important to the Maryland company than pursuing a specific kind of project,” the magazine reports.

That approach has paved the way to success, both for Buch and for its decades of satisfied clients.

On November 16, Buch Construction Project Manager Jeff Williford discussed one of the company’s current projects, a CHP Plant (Combined Heat and Power), at a presentation attended by industry experts from Lockheed Martin, AlbanCAT, local utility companies, and several government agencies. The event was hosted by eSai LLC, led by founder/principal Dr. Nandini Mouli. ESai is a leader in comprehensive solutions to energy management and carbon footprint concerns.

The expedited six-month project (initially planned for a year) consisted of installing a 2.5 MW AlbanCAT 3500 Series generator on the campus of MedImmune, the region’s largest biotech company. The project scope included underground utilities, ground up steel and cast-in-place structure, and mechanical and electrical tie-ins. Start-up took place on 11/19/2016. The system is currently going through an extensive commissioning process prior to client turnover.

“We are thrilled to be a part of such a cutting-edge project with a spectacular project team,” said Mike Buch, Senior Vice President. “And we are glad to share our knowledge with others in the field.”

A time lapse video of the construction can be viewed here.
