Blue Sky Phase 2 Tops Out
The second phase of the mid-rise commercial development at the Warner Bros’ studio recently topped out in Burbank, CA. Designed by the world-renowned architect Frank Gehry, the ten level structure sits atop a four level below grade parking podium.
In true Gehry fashion, the structure has exposed columns poured out of plumb and a boxy, glass and metal facade exterior. Over the course of 16 months an average of 63 workers put in nearly 25,000 man-days of labor to install 67,700CY of concrete totaling 1.17m gross square feet. Largo also self-performed the masonry scope installing nearly 40,000 concrete masonry units and 36,000 units in Phase 1. Largo is working with general contractor Krismar and structural engineer Englekirk on this unique project.
