What was the purpose of this project? What did the client request?

To provide UV Protection and aesthetically transform the four-story, steel frame structure of a state-of-the-art parking system designed by Auto Park-It. To optimize the minimal amount of parking spaces, Walter N. Marks, Inc. opted to install a new automated valet parking system for the exclusive use by the tenants and their employees at the Helms Bakery Business Center.

What is unique or complex about the project?

Keating Architecture contacted Eide Industries to assist with the design and development of the Textile Facade System, to enhance the look of the steel structure, at the Walter N. Marks Helms Bakery Parking Garage Project in Los Angeles, California. Eide designed and engineered the receiver brackets, hardware attachments and facade panels to be engineered for 110 MPH Wind-Loads, Exposure "B". Non-Combustible, Serge Ferrari Stamisol FT P35 teflon-coated fiberglass fabric was selected due to its durable 30+ year lifespan.

What were the results of the project?

The Eide Textile Facade System was successfully installed on the steel frame structure of the new automated valet parking system.
