The Beacon Residential Tower
Synopsis: The first residential high-rise project in downtown Cleveland, Ohio. The building stands over 355 feet tall. It contains one and two bedroom suites, on-site restaurants and garage parking.
- 18 stories / 8721 linear feet of prefabricated bypass curtain walls
- Cutting edge design for bypass framing with pre-installed sheathing
- Installation of sheathing and air / vapor barrier
- Intensive delivery and logistics coordination between Shrock Engineering, Shrock Prefab, and the installing contractor
Building height and limited site access provided an installation challenge. Shrock Engineering, Shrock Prefab, and the installing contractor worked closely in pre-construction to develop a design that could be sheathed during prefabrication and installed largely working from inside the building.
