Wilhelm served as the general contractor for this project and self-performed all site-work and concrete. To make the project more cost efficient Wilhelm used a cast in place structure, which used post tensioned cables in the upper floor slabs to reduce the use of conventional rebar reinforcement. This project is designed to achieve a LEED Silver rating.
