Terra-Petra’s Building Envelope Waterproofing Consulting Division was proud to be a part of the Holland Partner Group (HPG) “Topping Out Celebration” on May 19th. HPG organized this special event to recognize a great milestone in the construction process of its new development at 1375 S. St Andrews Place in Los Angeles, California. The project consists of the construction of a new 185 unit 8-story residential structure having 1 level of subterranean parking constructed adjacent to a 1 and 2-story existing theater.
As a premier developer of core urban infill residential and mixed-use trophy communities, HPG wanted to recognize this milestone as well as express gratitude to all the people and organizations that had a hand in the project reaching this stage.
We are very pleased to have played a role in the 1375 S. St Andrews Place development and look forward to providing Holland Partner Group with more support for their upcoming projects.
Terra-Petra is pleased to have contributed to this project in our little way. During the design phase, we served as the project’s building envelope waterproofing consultant. We were also retained through the Construction Administration phase by reviewing and responding to RFI’s and submittals as well as carrying out the inspections of the installed systems to ensure compliance with specifications, application requirements, and warranty compliance.
Recently we have been onsite witnessing mock-up installations of the window assemblies. More specifically we have been verifying that the building envelope systems are properly detailed and terminated per plans and specifications to ensure the watertight integrity of the system is achieved.
We are scheduled to conduct water penetration resistance testing of the installed fenestration systems once the installation goes into production in early May. Terra-Petra routinely performs QA/QC testing for numerous fenestration assemblies using methods ASTM E 1105 @Ambient Pressure or with a Vacuum Chamber and/or AAMA 501.2.
