Cambrian Rise is a large scale development with the goal of improving sustainability, diversity and a healthy lifestyle in the area. The “first comprehensive development of its kind in Vermont, Cambrian Rise is where sustainable living, community engagement, and business innovation come together as a beacon of possibility for Burlington and beyond.”
About the Project:
One Spruce Peak is a 6 story, 27 unit luxury slope-side condominium project located in Stowe, VT. The building’s architecture is inspired by the rugged peak of Mount Mansfield with a roofline that includes multiple gabled peaks.
Embedment Plates are not an inconsequential cost to the foundations of large construction projects. Here's a way to bring this cost down.
Tilt-up construction (sometimes called tilt-slab construction, tilt-up concrete construction or tilt-wall construction) is the process of using tilt-up concrete walls for the main building structure, usually of a commercial building. Tilt-up construction has many advantages for certain types of building projects and in fact some estimates are that over 650 million square feet of tilt-up construction buildings are constructed in the US in a year!

In this article we review the basics of tilt-up construction and introduce a new technology to reduce tilt-up construction costs and compress tilt-up construction timelines.

About the Project:
City Lights is an upscale apartment building that is designed with occupant comfort in mind. With a close attention to detail, the architects specified energy efficiency features such as large windows for solar gain which are triple glazed for energy efficiency and soundproofing.
The commercial building industry is investing significantly in improving building energy efficiency to comply with new energy codes and standards including ASHRAE 90.1, NECB, IECC, LEED and other Green Building Programs.
ASHRAE Standard 90.1, the Energy Standard for Buildings Except Low-Rise Residential Buildings (ref. 1) (included by reference in the International Energy Conservation Code (ref. 2)) addresses thermal bridging in wall, floor and roof assemblies by mandating that thermal bridging must be accounted for when determining or reporting assembly R-values and U- factors.
EM-BOLT is developing a series of innovative steel-to-concrete connections to solve many structural steel construction problems.
The construction industry is facing a well-known and unprecedented skilled labor shortage. Construction PMs have to allocate skilled resources carefully in order to meet construction project cost and timeline goals.
Using the innovative EM-BOLT embed plate design is a proven way to reduce construction costs and construction project timeline risks.
We've seen lots of repeat customers after they've used our innovative embed plate designs and thermal break solutions for the first time.
That's because of the impressive construction and energy cost savings that our innovative products deliver.
We want every Structural Engineer, Architect, Owner, and Construction Manager to feel confident when specifying and using EM-BOLT embed plates and thermal break solutions.
That's why when you use EM-BOLT products in your next construction project, EM-BOLT licensed structural engineers alleviate pressure on your structural design team by providing the embed plate design calculations and details free of charge.
When you’re evaluating a critical construction component such as concrete weld plates, it’s important as a Construction Manager, Structural Engineer or Construction Project Manager that you weigh the costs and benefits of a particular design that’s for sale against the needs of your project.
