A 29-story, 225-unit residential tower over a six-story parking structure. An alternate framing scheme was modeled to validate the overall design concept. BASE built a BIM model and provided material quantities to the contractor for rapid estimating. The review also included optimizing the foundation, wall and slab design to achieve a potential $2.1 million in savings. Additional benefits were achieved by eliminating dropped slabs in the tower allowing for more efficient and reduced cycle times for the forming systems.
