Driven concrete piles, approximately 35-40 feet below ground level providing a solid base for construction. These will virtually eliminate movement or settlement in the structure.
High strength, reinforced concrete grade beams below the perimeter of the building. The beams combined with the piles will provide an extremely strong and stable foundation.
Concrete floors, reinforced with steel as per plans (4”,5” & 6” in thickness). Provides a solid base to build upon.
Steel Floor joists / “Hambro system”. The Hambro system is considered to be the best flooring system on the market and will yield the quietest floors with little to no vibration.
Exterior walls will be wood framed with 2x8 for lower levels and 2x6 for upper levels. We will be using the highest quality fiberglass insulation in the wall cavities complimented by rigid insulation on the exterior. This will yield a strong wall system with higher R values which will deliver lower energy costs.
Interior walls will be constructed using steel studs which will provide very straight walls will no worries of nail popping after move-in.
The exterior walls will be a combination of a modern masonry product combined with pre-finished sidings. Our goal is to have a fantastic looking building that will ultimately be maintenance free for both short and long term. This will result in lower reserve fund fees.
Our roof system will be a manufactured wood truss product as per the plans. The shingles will be 35 year high quality asphalt.
