  • Horton Plaza | EIFS
  • Summit Clubhouse | Interior Plaster

In addition to the project awards, Raymond’s Northern California region was honored with Excellence in Construction Safety for contractors with fewer than 400,000 man-hours in 2023, recognizing the region’s outstanding safety statistics and employee safety program.

Congratulations to our project teams for exceptional performance and dedication to safety, quality, and continuous improvement.

CHANEL FLAGSHIP BOUTIQUE | This Chanel in Beverly Hills is the single largest retail store built to date on Rodeo Drive, and the largest Chanel boutique in the United States. The 30,000 square foot project was high-profile and has been featured in several magazines and television shows.

Raymond’s scope of work on the project was diverse, including fireproofing, load-bearing framing, non-load bearing framing, shear wall framing, shaft wall framing, Metl-Span insulated panels, STO Ventec/Ventro systems, exterior glass-mat sheathing, interior gypsum board, tile backer, RFID foil, and hollow metal door frames.

HORTON PLAZA | As of completion, Horton Plaza is the largest adaptive reuse project in the United States. The live, work, play campus is seven city blocks, 10 acres, and over 1 million square feet. In addition to being a renovation, six new floors were added to the largest of the buildings.

Raymond was contracted by Turner Construction Company to perform exterior and interior metal stud framing, drywall, insulation, taping, door frames, exterior EIFS systems (prefabricated panels), direct applied EIFS, fireproofing, scaffolding, rain screen systems with stone finish, and rough and finish carpentry.

Challenges surrounding the EIFS scope included installing new EIFS over existing materials, working around selective demolition operations, and matching existing conditions.



SUMMIT CLUBHOUSE | Summit Clubhouse is a 5-star, residential club community in Las Vegas. Raymond provided framing, drywall, tape, paint, wall covering and EIFS on the three-story building, which included 15 suites, a movie theater, spa, gym, dining room and pool.

Six different interior plaster special finishes were used on the Summit Clubhouse project, and many renditions of each finish were created during the submittal process to provide the best look. Difficulties existed around getting the colors and textures just right with each layer of color or wax reacting differently with the product applied before it. Unique trowels, sponges and brushes not typically used for this scope were utilized to help create the design intent.
