Project Updates

On June 2, the 1951 Shattuck team kicked off the month with a classic Webcor BBQ to celebrate topping out the 12-story mixed-use high-rise in downtown Berkeley while thanking their dedicated trade partners for their tireless efforts throughout the journey toward reaching this major milestone.

Webcorians (including Builders, Carpentry, Concrete, and Drywall) were joined by representatives from partner companies Grosvenor, JP Morgan Chase, SCB Architects, Tipping Structural Engineers, CMC, Intermountain Electric, Broadway Mechanical, Allied Fire, and CE Toland. Steve Buster. Sr. VP of Development at client company Grosvenor, voiced his appreciation for the outstanding work Webcor and our trade partners have delivered thus far and congratulated the entire team on topping out—an exciting milestone reflecting their perseverance and the project's substantial progress. Superintendent Tim Scapin followed up by reiterating Webcor’s heartfelt gratitude for our trade partners’ exemplary collaboration and commitment to the project, then transitioned to overseeing the raffle, which included gift cards, tools, and a pizza oven, for attending trade partners.

As a small but mighty team, the 1951 Shattuck crew has faced its fair share of challenges throughout the course of the project. Everyone has been asked to step outside their comfort zone by taking on responsibilities outside their typical role and confidently risen to the occasion to best support project progress as needed.  Additionally, team members navigated a uniquely challenging rain season that required careful strategizing to minimize impacts to the schedule.

“There are no weak links on this team,” says Sr. Project Manager Katie Chisholm. “Everyone is asked to go above and beyond their traditional tasks. We’ve developed a true team mindset—without hesitation, everyone does whatever it takes to support one another. This approach extends to the entire One Webcor group; all teams proactively engage with one another and are willing to make decisions and sacrifices based on what makes the most sense for the project as a whole.”

The team has kicked off steel erection for the roof penthouses and is wrapping up final miscellaneous concrete work. Clark Pacific will install the facade by the end of the month, and precast installation will complete by mid-August. The next milestone will take place in July when elevator installation kicks off. 1951 Shattuck expects to reach completion in April of next year.
