Advantages of Concrete in Low- to Mid-Rise Multifamily

This On Demand CEU is a recorded presentation from a previously live webinar event. Look around and you’ll see many 5 to 7 story residential projects being built today with one or two floors of concrete, supporting up to 5 floors of steel or wood frame. These “pedestal” projects are assumed to be the cheapest way to build while longer term ownership implications of these designs are not well understood. This 1-hour presentation dispels the myths that are driving the popularity of pedestal construction and demonstrates the ownership value concrete provides including lower operating costs, less maintenance, and improved tenant retention.

Detailing the Building Enclosure Interfaces – Identifying Areas of Concern Throughout the Construction Process

Webinar On-Demand: This On Demand CEU is a recorded presentation from a previously live webinar event.
