The One Paseo mixed-use development, located in Del Mar, California, consists of 23.6 acres of shopping, dining, luxury apartments, and high-performance office space. Raymond was contracted by The Whiting-Turner Contracting Company to perform the spray applied fireproofing, steel stud framing, interior drywall and taping, exterior insulation and finish systems (EIFS), and exterior cement board and batten on the office core and shell phase of the project.
Totaling approximately 286,000 square feet, the office portion includes two buildings, one 4-story and one 6-story, that offer floor to ceiling windows, amenity decks, indoor/outdoor spaces, and public plazas. The exterior of the buildings consist of mostly glass and metal panels, with the EIFS and cement board and batten assemblies used to match the aesthetic to the adjacent shopping and dining facilities.
Both buildings have an ‘eyebrow’ with framing, glass-mat board, and metal panels at the roofline. Cantilevered scaffolding was suspended from the roof (instead of building scaffolding from the ground up) to allow glass to be installed at the same time as the eyebrow work was being completed, helping to dry-in the buildings sooner.
The interior of the project included steel stud framing at the core and shell areas, demising walls, bathroom ceilings, and stairways, with shaftwall framing at the elevators. With a small footprint and laydown area, heavy trade and material coordination was key in keeping the project running smoothly.
There were areas where fireproofing could not be applied to the backside of beams. Raymond built lath baskets to bridge the gaps between walls and beams. In some areas, structural steel fireproofing thickness would not allow drywall to carry through. To allow for a single layer of drywall to pass by, intumescent coating was used in lieu of the fireproofing thickness required, while still maintaining wall and fireproofing ratings. Raymond set up two fireproofing machines to keep the project on its aggressive schedule.
One Paseo is a place to live, work, and play, and with community programs and social events planned year round, is set to create an environment where visitors and residents alike can find everything they need.
