Simpson recently completed a stucco and waterproofing project for Park 35 luxury apartments. Our team installed a traditional three coat stucco system with decorative EPS shapes and acrylic finish. While the system installed is a very traditional system, the design team envisioned very detailed EPS shapes to provide depth and add unique architectural features to the building. This system consisted of two layers of commercial building wrap, break metal at all horizontal terminations, expanded metal lath with pvc components, and a manufactured pre blinded silo fed stucco system with a standard acrylic finish. The EPS architectural shapes were drawn and cut in house with our CNC hotwire machine. In addition to the stucco scope, Simpson also installed exterior joint sealants, air barrier, building expansion joints and the waterproofing and pavers for the plaza deck.
While this project included approximately 50,000 square feet of stucco, a large volume of architectural EPS shapes, and multiple forms of scaffold used we were able to finish ahead of schedule in only four months. There were many people that made this project successful but one person in-particular, our superintendent Lance Chambers, did an outstanding job bringing this project to completion. We enjoyed being a part of the construction team on this project!
