Core and Shell:
The Platform at Culver Station is a retail, office and parking development that includes adaptive reuse of existing buildings in conjunction with new construction, to create a community-oriented niche shopping and office space environment. The Platform, named for its proximity to the new Expo Line station at Washington and National Boulevards, seeks to capitalize on activity generated by the Metro.
ARC Engineering has designed The Platform’s detailed core and shell MEP systems with an emphasis on flexible implementation for future tenants so that any type and permutation can be accommodated. The systems will incorporate centralized and metered power feeds to future tenants, core and shell and site lighting, high-efficiency mechanical equipment, and environmentally friendly design. Project Managers Hileman Company forecast a late 2013 start and one-year completion time for the $30 million project, designed by Abramson Teiger Architects and slated to be built by Del Amo Construction.
