SpeedCore: Rainier Square -- A Project Case Study

This webinar will review the design and construction aspects of the first high-rise in a seismically active zone in the U.S. to utilize a concrete-filled composite plate shear wall system, also known as SpeedCore. The benefits of a SpeedCore system will be highlighted by reviewing a project case study recently topped out in Seattle, Washington – Rainier Square. Benefits included construction schedule reduction, overall project cost savings, tighter tolerance through pre-fabrication, to name a few. In addition to the project case study, recent advancements in ongoing research and testing as well as upcoming code modification proposals will be presented.
