Highland Apartments

 “With a modernist architecture that references the mid-century classics in the nearby hills, the development offers the lifestyle and amenities of a contemporary boutique hotel.”

 

Proactive Structural Solutions: Getting it right early in the process

The Highland Apartments exemplify DCI Engineers’ ability to add value to projects by being proactive early in the design process. The 150,000-sf project consists of five levels of residential units over one and a half levels of below-grade parking with some ground floor retail space. The building features a host of modern amenities, including a rooftop common area, fitness center, and pool. The development is conveniently located near a variety of restaurants, stores, and mass transit options.

Project Highlights

  • The structural system features five levels of Type III wood-framed construction over a podium constructed out of post-tensioned concrete slabs supported by concrete columns and concrete shearwalls.
  • DCI worked closely with the team to resolve issues concerning the lateral and gravity systems of the rooftop deck, which included a large pool.
  • DCI’s pragmatic approach to value engineering saved the client money by identifying cost-effective solutions to the fire-treated wood exterior wall framing.
