Project Description
Two four-story senior housing units sitting on top of steel podium parking totaling approximately 120,000 sq. ft.

Tru-Frame® Value Added:
Utilizing a combination of Tru-Frame® and Hambro® Joists we were able to provide 9’-11” floor-to-floor heights with an 8’-10” ceiling. This provided a “moment” type design with no bearing walls or diagonal bracing and superior UL ratings that eliminated all fireproofing. The combination of these two unique systems which we call Tru-Bro™ provided significant cost savings, reduced foundation requirements, eliminated fireproofing and reduced erection time. Vertical erection allowed other trades to begin their work earlier in the schedule.
