Proj Overview
Hollow core plank was specified for the structure from the 2nd floor through the 8th floor and roof. Hollow core plank provided an efficient structural system that could help accelerate the construction schedule. Considering the site is extremely tight and sits between two busy streets, hollow core plank was a perfect solution for a quick erection with limited space required. The hollow core plank was picked directly from the delivery flatbed truck using a tower crane and immediately placed on the structure. The 102,278 S/F of 8” hollowcore plank accounted for roughly 1,335 pieces, many of them left uncovered for a contemporary ceiling finish.
