Hambro Composite Floor Joists will be utilized in the new women’s and children’s facility in Baltimore, MD from nonprofit Helping Up Mission. With Hambro Joists bearing on prefabricated metal stud wall panels, this 145,000-square-foot, 6-story shelter will provide housing and services for up to 200 women & children in need. Hambro offers a non-combustible structural solution with superior fire and sound ratings. This lightweight system bearing on metal studs over a parking structure can significantly reduce the transfer deck and foundation requirements, equating to big savings. The Swirnow team became involved early on in this project by working on an efficient layout with the design team, and providing upfront conceptual estimating with subcontractor input to Whiting-Turner. This helped ensure real numbers during the early design stage in order to keep the structure on budget.

Circle East

Circle East is a 240,000-square-foot high-rise apartment and retail complex project in Towson, MD. This 8-story redevelopment features Hambro Structural Floors bearing on prefabricated load bearing metal studs over 6-stories of a poured in place parking structure. The combination of Hambro on load bearing metal studs provides a lighter structure that can help reduce the transfer and foundation requirements when building up to 11 stories. The strip and go Hambro forming system bearing on fully sheathed prefabricated wall panels resulted in a faster construction schedule. This allowed the building to be closed in as the structure went up.
