Vision on Wilshire


Located on the corner of Wilshire and Crescent Heights Boulevards, the eighteen-story tower brings more than 150 apartments to the Beverly Grove neighborhood. The complex offers residents two amenity decks, a rooftop pool, ground-level retail, and below-grade parking. SGH consulted on the building enclosure, featuring a facade with alternating window walls and opaque panels.

SGH assisted with the design of below- and at-grade waterproofing; exterior wall cladding; windows; podium, terrace, and balcony waterproofing; and low-slope roofing. Highlights of our work include the following:

  • Reviewed the proposed design, helped select systems, and suggested ways to improve performance
  • Prepared sections of the project specifications, including criteria for building enclosure performance and requirements for mockups and testing certain systems
  • Collaborated with the project team to evaluate the use of window walls, considering schedule and cost advantages
  • Developed details to integrate the various systems, such as podium and balcony waterproofing with the exterior wall systems; concrete planter waterproofing with the window wall system; pool/jacuzzi waterproofing with the other systems at the roof deck; and the ground-level, fluid-applied air barrier and storefront system with the window wall system above
  • Helped develop alternate window wall details and transitions to decrease the risk of water intrusion and increase thermal/energy performance
  • Coordinated installation of a hot rubberized-asphalt podium waterproofing system to remain continuous through planters, pedestal pavers, and other amenity features
  • Provided construction administration services, including reviewing contractor submittals, visiting the site to observe installation of the building enclosure assemblies, and helping the project team address field conditions
