Project Description

Faced with space constraints after acquiring air rights from a neighboring property, our client required a creative structural design for a proposed 6-story structure. Our team of structural engineers and construction managers took a resourceful and creative approach, designing and implementing a two-way continuous footing foundation and reinforced concrete cantilever slab. The result was a successful and innovative way to increase neighborhood density.
