Case Study

Skyline Tower is a 12-story mixed use building. Ultimately, Ecospan was able to make the numbers on the project work by cutting 56,700 cubic feet of construction materials and 8,400 sq. ft. of cladding.

“Ultimately it came down to dollars and cents. Having lower floor-to-floor heights was where we found the real savings.” – Todd Kortus, PE, SE, Engineering Resources, Inc.
