Reno City Center, formerly known as Harrah’s Reno, is a complex that consists of multiple structures constructed and remodeled at different dates. The complex encompasses nearly two blocks housing 11 distinct building areas including 9 structural groups, a plaza and parking lot at grade. Buildings were constructed from 1915 to as late as the 1990s. Primary building materials consist of steel frame structures clad in cement plaster, pre-cast panels, EIFS, terracotta, metal panels, and aluminum fenestration systems. Roofing systems consist of SBS modified bitumen roofs, single-ply mechanically attached EPDM membranes, a traffic deck coating and more recently a fully adhered single-ply PVC membrane. Harrah’s Reno was sold in September 2020 and will be renamed and repurposed as Reno City Center and will include 540 apartments.
MCA was hired to provide a Property Condition Assessment (PCA) in accordance with ASTM E 2018 (Standard Guide for Property Condition Assessments). PCAs provide a detailed evaluation of building enclosure conditions and remediation recommendations to extend the useful service life of the buildings. The goal is to identify and communicate physical deficiencies to the client observed through MCA’s walk-through survey and detailed written report. MCA’s years of experience aid in providing an accurate evaluation of buildings and recommendations. The Property Condition Assessment report was provided to the client on March 13, 2020.
