Why should S+A design my next Multi-Unit Residential Building (MURB)?
Residential buildings are no longer just a few standard floor plans sitting on top of a lobby. They have expanded dramatically in size, scope and ambition. New developments are attempting to “touch the clouds” while incorporating a significant amount of retail, restaurant, commercial, hotel and live-work spaces, plus expansive amenities. When you couple projects of this scale with today’s increased energy performance requirements and more restrictive codes and by-laws, it becomes clear that this sector can no longer support the industry’s “do as we have always done” approach. All of this plays to our strengths at S+A. Our technical experience and ability to provide creative engineering designs for our clients is coupled with a full understanding of the limited attention that systems receive during a building’s lifespan.
