Challenges and solutions

Working on a tight site, constructing the custom forty-six degree roof on such a high building presented a number of challenges that were overcome by staging the build and allowing sufficient access for all trades as they required it. 

To allow for maximum storage space on the ground floor, large clear-span bearers were installed in the subfloor design. We worked closely with the architect and our client's builder to account for all details and provide a streamlined construction process.
