Del Mar condo renovation nears completion

DEL MAR — JVB Construction Management’s $9.5 million reconstruction and renovation of Saratoga West, a 90-unit condominium project in Del Mar, will be completed at the end of September.
The 30-year-old complex, developed originally with investment capital from horse racing jockeys, has been plagued by water intrusion and defective initial construction since it was originally built. The comprehensive reconstruction project encompassed the removal and replacement of all roofs, windows, sliding glass doors, skylights, decks, stairways as well as the exterior refurbishment of all 11 buildings.
“This is one of the more comprehensive condo reconstruction projects to be undertaken in many years in the San Diego region,” John van Blerck, president of JVB Construction Management, said.
New materials used in the project included Thermoplastic Olefin roofs, elastomeric paint coatings, stainless steel flashings and new deck systems. New vinyl windows and doors are being installed throughout the development.
