Instructions: Click on any panorama to load the interactive viewer. You can then explore the image by click/tap-dragging in it (this even works on your phone/tablet). To make individual images full-screen use the icon directly below the zoom buttons (currently not supported on Apple mobile devices).

This open studio area shows the pure wood structure (columns, beams, and CLT slabs) before the concrete floors are poured and before any MEP installations. You can see how the columns are pocketed at the top to provide for seated beams and column-to-column connections that only connect end-grain to end-grain (avoiding any shrinkage issues). At the base of the columns, you can also see the baseplate spacers that connect columns vertically through the floors. Note how the glulam frame avoids secondary cross-beams.

The concrete floors in this wide-open studio area were poured earlier, which shows them already finished. You can also see the fourth-floor mezzanine level above (which will remain open to below) and some tall interior walls going in.

This view shows the complete extent of the large steel truss that will support half of the atrium roof structure and roof garden above. This truss was lifted into position in two sections. A short CLT bridge at the left end of the truss will provide one of the access paths to the outdoor space.

The top-landing location in this stair shaft shows the enclosing 7-layer CLT structure as well as the inserted steel stair (with concrete topping).

This hallway view outside of the stair door shows nicely how structure, partitions, and MEP come together.

The view a little further down the hall offers a glimpse into some of the drywalled offices. In the South offices you can see the wood ceiling and columns, which will remain exposed. The hallway ceiling in contrast has very tight MEP runs that will be hidden behind a conventional drop ceiling. One of the North offices (the left one) shows a sample of the polished concrete flooring.

This is an inside view of one of the offices, showing drywall and the CLT ceiling that will remain exposed.

This is one of the two conference rooms on the curtainwalled end of the office wing. The boxed-in inside wall hides a bend in the exhaust ducting.
