Waldorf Astoria

Allana Buick & Bers (ABB) was retained by Gensler to provide building envelope consulting services for the new Beverly Hills Waldorf Astoria Hotel (Waldorf) located on Wilshire Boulevard in Beverly Hills, California.

The Beverly Hills Waldorf Astoria replaced the Beverly Hills Hilton Hotel. The new hotel is a 13-story structure sited atop a two-story subterranean parking garage. The first three levels are clad in window walls and glazing systems with glazed strip window walls that continue throughout all the guest rooms. Stone veneer covers the guest room decks, while mounted stone pavers cover the landscape roof decks, and waterproofing assemblies.

ABB’s scope of work included design consultation and construction phase services for the exterior wall, window, curtain wall, and exterior enclosure systems. ABB performed mock-up construction testing of the curtain wall and exterior enclosure systems.
