Install Update at the Tower at PNC Plaza

from Matt Capone

We must give the crew working the Tower at PNC Plaza some well deserved credit. The downtown Pittsburgh structure is climbing steady at 30% total progress, with completion of the structural steel more than half way done. See the progress on the Tower at PNC Plaza project website.

The installation of Isokorb® type CM in the concrete slab edges continues to progress  as rebar and slab installation nears the 30th floor. The live construction camera shows the crew steady at work.

Passive House and the Tower at PNC Plaza

from Angie Tennyson

What do Passive House (Passivhaus) and the Tower at PNC Plaza have in common?

Pittsburgh and High Performance Building.

Last week we attended the 8th Annual North American Passive House Conference  in Pittsburgh. We realize the passive house movement is growing momentum and expanding from a predominately residential focus-to include passive commercial and multi-family projects. While passive standards have not been implemented in many commercial or multi-family projects in North America, there is movement forward to incorporate high performance strategies, and those involved in the Passive House movement are at the forefront of this progress.
