Claremont Country Club

Project Details

The Claremont Country Club maintains historic building status by the City of Oakland.  Phase I was an interior remodel of the ground floor recreation areas.  Phase II & III were accelerated and consolidated into one project to meet the client’s aggressive timetable.

Phase II was an 8,000+ sf addition to the existing clubhouse, and was comprised of two distinct wings.  The Ladies’ Lounge & Locker wing includes locker rooms, shower and bath areas, and a quaint sitting lounge.  Atop the Lounge wing are mechanical and storage areas, housed within a new roof structure cut of several 16:12 gables.  The Exercise wing includes cardio and weightlifting areas, a sprung-floor aerobic area, and an office.  Above the exercise rooms is an exterior terrace, finished with cast pavers and bound by a parapet of cast stone.  The addition is clad with Tudor style ornamental woodwork and acid-washed stucco.

Phase III was a new 3,500sf Poolhouse building, new swimming pools, and extensive sitework.  The Poolhouse includes men’s and women’s locker and bath areas, storage and equipment areas, an office, and a full commercial kitchen.  The Poolhouse elevations are finished with a combination of cedar siding, stucco, and wood trim.  It is protected from the weather by a faux-slate tile roof, to match the new natural slate tile roof installed in Phase II.  Design build MEP.

  • As in most renovation projects many hidden and unforeseen conditions were discovered. In addition the client made numerous changes in finishes and material selections. The project provided multiple opportunities for Overaa Construction to claim extra cost due to errors and omissions in the plans or unforeseen conditions discovered in the work. Overaa instead chose to complete the project without claims and within the established budget, in spite of significant delays which were beyond their control.
