Portfolio — 605 West Chapel Hill
605 West Chapel Hill was completed in 2014 and is a luxury apartment building designed for graduate students and young professionals. In order to accommodate an expedited schedule where the design process started in January 2013 a steel framing system was used on the first level in lieu of what typically is accomplished with a concrete podium system. Type 3A construction requirements led to a unique framing layout where the exterior walls were non load bearing and expensive fire retardant framing for exterior walls was not required.
