‘Up-Down’ or ‘Up-Up’ construction is our specialty.

If the below-grade component is not carefully planned and designed, a project is at risk both in terms of construction duration and construction cost.
Almost every urban project we work on has a basement or below grade component. Most often, and in the case of multi-level below-grade construction, the space is used for structured parking (click here for more information regarding our above grade Structured Parking experience). Regardless of the intended use of the below-grade space, if not carefully planned and designed it can represent a substantial risk to a project both in terms of construction duration and construction cost. With a wealth of knowledge of below-grade building systems, we at McNamara  Salvia work with our clients to identify the most cost-effective solutions to meet their objectives. Whether it be lowest initial cost of construction, long term cost of ownership, time to market as reflected by ‘Up-Down’ or ‘Up-Up’ construction techniques we can help you understand the trade-offs between systems, so the team can make an informed decision regarding the best solution for the project.
