Project Type

New Residential / Mixed Use - Passive House

Project Scope

New 60,000 SF 8 story senior residence and community center building. Structural framing consists of poured-in-place concrete flat plate construction. The lateral system is concrete shear walls.

The building had to be designed on a mat foundation due to poor soil conditions and a high water table. This project was pursuing Passive House certification which required close collaboration of the structural detailing to prevent thermal bridging. It has since been awarded a Passive House Certification, being one of the largest Passive House Projects in the US.
