CERTIFIED LEED PLATINUM
The corporate headquarters of Mark IV Capital in Newport Beach has recently received LEED Platinum certification, the highest standard, by the U.S. Green Building Council. The steel-framed building includes 20,600 square feet of office and 9,000 square feet of subterranean parking. Sustainable design features include an energy-efficient building envelope, water-saving landscaping, and rooftop solar. Ware Malcomb is the project’s architect. Wright Engineers’ Irvine team provided structural and MEP engineering services. Prior to our team’s involvement, the building’s design, which had already been completed by other firms, was considered too inefficient to build. Wright re-engineered the building, making the project viable.
THE CLAYTON HOUSE
The Clayton House, a wedding and corporate event venue located in Scottsdale, Arizona, recently held its grand opening.
The building was originally four separate adjacent industrial buildings built at different times and then merged into one facility. Three flexible light-filled spaces with exposed block walls, wood, steel and glass, and covered patios can accommodate up to 700 guests. Working with Aline Architecture, Wright Engineers provided structural engineering services to add a mezzanine, and exterior entry and shade elements, stiffen existing framing to allow removal of columns for open layout, remove exterior walls to allow more natural light, and many other items to help make this project a great success. Standing in the space now, it is hard to imagine the dark, industrial space that was there just a short time ago.
