Hambro Structural Floors will be utilized on the new Lake Anne Fellowship House Apartments located in Reston, VA which offers 240-units of affordable senior living. Hambro Joists bearing on prefabricated steel stud wall panels offers a faster construction schedule at a lesser cost than other floor systems. Hambro is a non-combustible and lightweight structural combination, which offered a cost effective option over poured in place. At 7-stories, wood frame as a construction method couldn’t accommodate the project height. The lightweight structural combination of Hambro and 3” slabs helped to reduce the transfer deck and foundation requirements. Swirnow Structures was involved in the project very early on and collaborated with the design team to provide longer joist spans given Hambro’s composite action, making for an efficient framing layout.
38 Walnut Street is a new 3-story apartment building being constructed in Lancaster, PA. Hambro joists bearing on wood frame were designed into the project, and Swirnow Structures was involved early on in the design stages to support a smooth bidding process. Swirnow Structures was also able to quickly assist the general contractor and design team with modifications in the field to ensure project success and schedule. Hambro joists are exposed on the interior of the building and painted with intumescent paint to give an industrial aesthetic.
