The 2nd and Adams luxury condominium building sits in the coveted Cherry Creek neighborhood. The project is six residential levels above grade and two parking levels
below grade. The project will include 61 parking stalls, 35 condo units, and a rooftop
amenity deck. Total gross area of the project is approximately 90,000 square feet.

The structure is cast-in-place concrete with post-tensioned slabs. A unique wide shallow beam system was developed to extend the spans at the condo units and reduce columns. This approach helped implement the architectural open concept layout as well as eliminated the need for additional transfer beams at the lower levels and improved parking efficiency. As a result, the floor slab thickness was reduced to seven inches which reduced the overall building weight and expanded floor to ceiling height. The lateral system consists of a hybrid system of concrete shear walls and slab-column frame that reduces the need for additional shear walls and distributes the overturning forces throughout the foundation. This created significant cost savings in the foundation and structural frame and accelerated the construction schedule.
