The presentation will touch on the design of the new student apartment complex, its interaction with the surrounding context, and the unit design. The presentation will also include the construction challenges such as the unique soils conditions and the aggressive schedule. The project includes a unique structural framing system, utilizing structural steel stud panel system providing efficiencies in speed, weight and cost.
