IPD Engineering was part of the design-build method which allowed this project to reach the owners goal and vision of creating a unique, modern residential complex situated on a key urban site. The final result is a contemporary complex consisting of 39 1-bedroom units and highly desirable retail space located on the first floor. Residential spaces are generous with high ceilings, yet efficient in function and size. Neutral colors and high-end finishes in key areas make the living spaces inviting with a luxurious touch. Amenities include: common bike/tenant storage, secured elevator access to residence area, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, tile floors and pocket doors with transom windows. IPD’s engineers developed this plan using high efficiency HVAC units and lighting in every apartment. After evaluating three structural options with high efficient floor plans, a wood-framed option was chosen to meet the owner’s original goals and budget.
