Winding Creek at Old Tappan is a 63 unit condominium development in Bergen County. It was designed by a Canadian architect in the 1990’s and soon afterwards developed serious water infiltration problems and structural inadequacies. Joel Ives, AIA first acted on behalf of the Condominium Association as an “Expert Witness” in the litigation and later was commissioned as the “Architect of the Repair.” The Ives Architecture Studio worked within the budget to remove and replace the majority of the exterior materials and decks. Our staff prepared about 100 drawings to effectuate the repair which was more than the original architect developed for the original construction. The community is now repaired and its occupants can enjoy their homes, or sell them, without the concern of design, construction deficiencies, mold and water leaking into their homes.
