An upstate NY residential CLT project, where all of the walls, interior and exterior, were framed with CLT. And good thing. With the rather interesting floor plan, pretty much all wood fiber in the building was put to use.
You'd think building a cabana for a large resort on a Caribbean island would require designing for hurricane force winds. In this case, earthquake activity actually was more critical (note the volcano in the background). Although, if the earth shakes that badly from a volcanic eruption – there may be bigger things to worry about (did I mention the volcano in the background?)
Crane day is always excited, especially when we worked on the raising plan and the lift is a Burr arch covered bridge.
A 700lb pick over the top of the building can max out a 300-ton crane.
Nothing quite as exciting as seeing a freshly repaired covered bridge flying back over the abutments to its new (old) home.
