The Park @ Live Oak

Summarize the project's program, features and achievements?

The project at The Park at Live Oak in Irwindale involves site development for industrial and commercial space spanning 78.3 acres, with entitlements for 1.55 million s.f.. Notably, Building 3 was constructed with a low embodied carbon mix design, switching to Type 1PLC (Portland Limestone Cement) powder, aligning with state mandates for reducing global warming potential and carbon emissions.

What obstacles were overcome related to the schedule, budget, program, specification, site, etc. on this project?

Various obstacles were overcome during the project, including those related to schedule, budget, and specifications. Coordination with multiple stakeholders such as regulatory agencies presented challenges, but the project stayed on track for completion by the scheduled deadline of summer 2024. Budget challenges were addressed through efficient resource allocation and procurement strategies.

Please communicate any engineering complexities or unique features of the panel design for this project?

The engineering complexities of the panel design involved transitioning to a low embodied carbon mix design for Building 3. This required careful selection and integration of materials, such as Type 1PLC powder, to achieve reduced global warming potential (GWP) compared to traditional cement powders. Mock-ups, trials, and testing were conducted to ensure the efficacy and sustainability of the panel design.

What is the potential for this project's impact on the community and/or environment?

The project's impact on the community and environment is substantial. By utilizing a low embodied carbon mix design for Building 3, the project demonstrates a commitment to reducing carbon emissions and environmental impact. Furthermore, achieving LEED Silver certification for Phase 1 buildings underscores the project's sustainability efforts, contributing positively to the community and environment.
