Architect: AC Martin
General Contractor: Turner Construction
Framing Contractor: Standard Drywall Inc.
Curved Framing: Radius Track Corporation
Standard Drywall, Inc. chose Radius Track Corporation to design and fabricate swale framing to enable efficient and accurate assembly on site. “Look at the swale ceiling in the Porte Cochère. The whole structure is full of compound radius components that change elevation,” said Standard Drywall, Inc. Sr. Project Manager Kevin Greer.

As framing experts, Radius Track designers find that complete documentation – including detailed 2D & 3D digital drawings, specifications, and concise installation instructions – produce the best results for complex surfaces. For the Wilshire Grand Porte Cochère ceiling project, Radius Track provided the full documentation set including a digital drawing package, as well as prefabricated framing profiles and customer support. The comprehensive approach helped anticipate issues prior to construction, honor the design intent, and deliver a constructable, cost-effective solution.

Greer said, “The Radius Track Design Technologist was a solution-oriented asset and delivered on a tight schedule, and was indispensable in the success of the swale ceiling.” Providing incremental elevation points extracted from the Radius Track 3D model to help Greer’s team deliver a precise framing installation is one example of the type of customer support Radius Track provides in addition to precision framing.
