The Getty on the High Line – Curtain Wall

McLaren Engineering Group provided peer review services for the installation of this customized curtain wall system at The Getty. Located on West 24th Street in West Chelsea’s burgeoning art district, the 12-story, 6-unit mixed-use building faced several conditions that led to a specialized curtain wall design. Designed by Peter Marino, the building itself is an architectural sculpture. Full floor residential units, starting on the 5th floor, each feature their own unique layout as well as stunning views of the Manhattan High Line.

The McLaren Difference: Applied Ingenuity

For the structural design of the facade, McLaren served as the technical resource for calculations prepared by the engineer in Europe. Calculations were provided for the design of a number of anchorage field repairs, and extension plates installed at a number of anchor hooks. McLaren’s familiarity with local codes and performance standards, as well as expertise in the facade and curtain wall industry, helped the client, AZA INT, successfully deliver the project to completion.

McLaren provided peer review and signed/sealed shop drawings and calculations for the designed system and field modifications. This included performing rapid assessments and onsite reviews by engineers to meet the project delivery schedule.

The proximity to the High Line, a New York City destination, raised the profile of the project. McLaren was able to assist with the more focused performance criteria and design reviews for the customized design.
