This five-story beach front condominium project adjacent to the Cavalier Hotel in Virginia Beach is known as 42 Ocean at the Cavalier. This project was originally designed to be a wood structure, but early in the construction bidding process, the project switched the primary structure from wood to Vulcraft’s Ecospan structural floor system supported by cold-formed steel. The switch resulted in a better, stronger and more cost-efficient design.
