Description of Project:
The 396,000-square-foot, five-level office complex is a combination of cast-in-place concrete, structural steel and precast elements over a three-level subterranean parking structure and includes an adjacent five-level post-tensioned long span concrete parking structure.
The complex, in Pasadena’s Playhouse District, had to be designed to meet stringent architectural requirements in the interest of preserving the city’s architectural history. The construction logistics were challenged by restrictions that did not allow long-term staging for construction vehicles on adjacent streets and limited the space for concrete delivery and pumping equipment.
The project was completed in the spring of 2005.
