Century City, CA

The Century


The Century offers forty-two stories of luxury condominiums with views from downtown Los Angeles to the Pacific Ocean. The elliptical-shaped building sits on nearly four acres of landscaped grounds and features terraced podium levels, plaza areas, and two levels of below-grade parking. SGH provided design consulting and construction administration services for the building enclosure.

SGH consulted on the design and construction of the building enclosure, including below-grade waterproofing, podium deck waterproofing, curtain wall, punched windows, precast panels, cement plaster, anchored stone, terrace waterproofing, balcony waterproofing with thin set tile, and low-slope roofing.

Highlights of our work included the following:

  • Assisting with the selection of building enclosure systems
  • Reviewing aspects of the building enclosure design included in architectural drawings and specifications and providing recommendations to improve performance
  • Detailing transitions between various systems to create a watertight enclosure
  • Reviewing building enclosure submittals and shop drawings to compare with design requirements
  • Witnessing field testing of glazing assemblies to evaluate as-built performance
  • Observing ongoing construction to compare with the design intent
  • Assisting the design and construction team in developing solutions needed to address as-built conditions
