AMHA Hilltop House

Akron Metropolitan Housing Authority (AMHA) Hilltop House

Donley’s Restoration Group will be completing this project for AMHA Hilltop House in early 2020. The Hilltop House is used as public housing for elderly community members and Summit County residents who need housing assistance. The six story, 78 unit property was built in 1968.

Our work started with erecting scaffolding so that residents can use their back patios as a front entrance. After, we removed and replaced the existing front entrance concrete balconies using a new steel frame and traditionally reinforced concrete slabs.

This project was design build/public bid.

Pier W Stabilization

Pier W Stabilization

Donley’s provided concrete services for the iconic restaurant, Pier W, during its original construction in 1963. Over the years, we have provided maintenance and restoration for the structure to ensure it’s long life on the shores of Lake Erie. Even after over half a century Donley’s is still involved with this memorable Cleveland landmark.

In the Fall of 2017, Donley’s Restoration Group teamed with McKinney Drilling, and Huffman Equipment and Contracting to add additional reinforcement and stabilization to the 50 year old structure. This Pier W Stabilization project required the construction of a wall, under the existing restaurant, that would protect the current 35-foot cliff face from further erosion. The team placed twenty-two, forty-foot-deep caissons underneath the hull of the restaurant for stabilization. Once these caissons were in place, a concrete pier cap was “loose formed” and placed over top of the caissons. This required the use of 2×4’s and plywood to form the wall, rather than a pre-engineered formwork system

The team worked on the underside of the restaurant, right on the shore of Lake Erie, making access to the site a bit unconventional. All equipment and materials for the Pier W Stabilization had to be brought on site by lake, on a barge, as pictured below. As for the construction team, they had access to the jobsite, by rope, down the hillside. The support wall itself presented some challenges as well. While drilling for the caissons, an abandoned dock was found 22 feet below the proposed structure, requiring it to be demolished and removed by the team. The concrete for the wall had to be pumped 400 feet horizontally, to get to the point of placement due to the nearby parking garage not being rated for the weight of a concrete truck. Even with these challenges, Donley’s and team finished the project successfully in 11 weeks’ time. The final concrete wall was 35-feet tall, 30-feet wide, and 12-feet deep, providing the cantilevered restaurant with a stable and reliable support.

Donley’s also took advantage of the Indians’ schedule in the summer to remove, waterproof, and replace approximately 2,000 sq. ft. of concrete while the team was out of town. Donley’s is currently off site, but will return in the fall of 2017 to complete the project.
