The first phase of a multi-parcel development, The Emerson is a twenty-story residential tower designed by Arquitectonica. In addition to its luxury apartments, the building houses a restaurant and offers a pool and spa, gym, library, ground-level and rooftop common areas, and below-grade parking. SGH consulted on the building enclosure design for this development.


Scope | Solutions


SGH assisted LARGE Architecture with the design of below-grade waterproofing, water storage tank waterproofing, exterior wall waterproofing, curtain wall and windows, plaza and terrace waterproofing, and low-slope roofing. Highlights of our work include the following:

  • Assisted with the selection of roofing and waterproofing systems

  • Developed details for integrating various building enclosure systems

  • Provided design performance criteria for further developing specifications

  • Reviewed building enclosure submittals and shop drawings and observed ongoing construction to compare with the design intent

  • Helped resolve variations uncovered during construction

  • Observed field testing, including water and adhesion testing of waterproofing membrane to verify performance of as-built components and systems
