Apartment and Condo Buildings
The structural design of multi-unit buildings like apartment and condominium complexes create challenges for the design team in many ways; the sheer size of many projects requires constant coordination of details while the entire design may go through several cycles of changes. Our office has been involved in the design of multi-unit projects – both Type V and reinforced concrete – as large as several hundred units and our team of engineers and drafters delivered solid performance and dependable results throughout these projects.
