Dallas, TX

Ascent Victory Park, 2588 North Houston Street


Located in Dallas’s Victory Park neighborhood and overlooking the city’s basketball arena, the Ascent brings 300 rental units to the community. The twenty-three-story building offers ground-level retail space, a sixth-floor amenity level with a pool cantilevering over the facade edge, and a rooftop patio and fitness center. SGH consulted on the building enclosure design for the residential tower.

SGH assisted with the design of the building enclosure, including balcony and terrace waterproofing, wall air/water barriers and cladding, roofing, and waterproofing below and around the amenity-level pool. Highlights of our work include the following:

  • Helped evaluate system options and provided recommendations based on the desired performance, advantages, and disadvantages
  • Assisted with developing the design performance criteria and mockup requirements
  • Reviewed the building enclosure design and recommended ways to improve performance
  • Developed details to integrate the various systems, including integrating waterproofing with the specialty pool glazing
  • Provided construction phase services, including reviewing contractor submittals, observing ongoing construction and water infiltration testing to compare with the design intent, and helping the architect and contractor resolve field conditions
