Designed by Design Collective, EastSide III is a three-building mixed-use development with 365 apartments and approximately 50,000 square feet of retail in Pittsburgh, PA’s Shadyside neighborhood.  Each building consists of 5 stories with terraces, decks, and multiple cladding types including storefront, brick, fiber cement siding, stucco, and metal panels.

Building Science Corporation worked with the design team through the design phase to mitigate the risk of moisture related failures in the building enclosure and remained on board through construction to observe first installations and respond to field conditions not anticipated during the design phase such as sequencing changes in the installation of storefront and below-grade waterproofing systems.
