Rastegar Infinity Park

Summarize the project's program, features and achievements?

Our project aimed to meet schedule and budget requirements while fulfilling the vision of our client's inaugural tiltwall endeavor. Notable achievements include seamless coordination with stakeholders, strengthened subcontractor relationships, and valuable lessons in team communication. Despite challenges such as inclement weather and complex inspection requirements, our team persevered through innovative solutions and collaborative efforts to ensure project success.

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

The schedule faced significant pressure due to prolonged rainfall, spanning nearly three months during the concrete pouring phase. This site is in a location with high PI soil conditions. Due to this, daily efforts such as temporary roads, constant pumping, regrading, and lime stabilizing were required to facilitate subcontractor access and production. Additionally, effective communication proved essential in overcoming challenges posed by a new restructuring of government agencies and new inspection processes that emerged during the building process. This required adaptive learning and on-the-fly problem-solving.

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

The project presented several unique engineering complexities and design features that added both enjoyment and challenge to the construction process. Notably, the incorporation of a form liner band resulted in aesthetically pleasing finishes, while the front entries have angled panels intersecting with skewed soffits, and recessed panel legs for continuous spanning of glazing systems.

Building 4 required innovative design adjustments, providing an opportunity for the team to showcase their adaptive problem-solving skills by pouring an additional 2 feet on top of raised entry panels. Despite tiltwall buildings often being associated with uniformity and square boxes, the project's distinctive color palette and architectural angles set it apart, elevating its visual appeal among its counterparts.

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

The project's location in South Austin, just off State Highway 130, is poised to significantly benefit its tenants by providing easy access to the greater Austin area. Situated in the heart of Texas, the development offers convenient transportation links, facilitating efficient delivery and access to all four major cities in the state.

The project's commitment to sustainable practices has earned it a commendable LEED rating, further contributing to its positive impact on the environment and community. As Austin continues to experience growth and expansion, this project plays a pivotal role in paving the way for further development and economic activity in the region.
