Synopsis: Two separate apartment buildings on one tight project site in downtown Richmond, VA. One seven story building and one 8 story building comprising nearly 30,000 linear feet of wall panels!
- Fifteen total stories of prefabricated load-bearing exterior and interior wall panels.
- 30,000 linear feet of load-bearing walls.
- CFS engineered shop drawings
- Exterior wall cladding utilized a fire retardant board
A tight project site and a huge amount of load-bearing walls create a challenge for logistics and manufacturing for obvious reasons. Shrock prefab added a second layer of exterior grade flameblock board in order to meet stringent fire ratings due to adjacent building proximities.
