Hey Hey. From what I'm reading, seems like a very solid choice.

I mean - a Chicago DPD Commissioner that's actually qualified for the job?
We're already coming out ahead!

^^Is 1040 West Fulton a brand new timber loft? Those look like lam beams in the framing system.

Yes, it is. Neat idea from LG. If it turns out to be cost-effective compared to steel, I think we'll see a lot more of this.

If nothing else, the wood construction is greener than steel or concrete with a lower carbon footprint. CLT would be greener still, but it's presently not allowed under Chicago Building Code. Maybe the switch to IBC will finally allow CLT to be used, though.
