And Lift Off!

After a strong push to get things assembled and ready last weekend and the past few days things are starting to fall into place, literally! With all the posts finally up, using the Genie Lifts that were brought back from Celmson on Monday (thanks Cam!), we were able to get our 48 ft long gutter [...]

Almost Ready to Lift

Last night we moved all the rafters to the site and assembled our 48 FOOT beams that run down the center of the structure helping to support the roof and gutter.

We agreed to use this scheme as a base to develop the final design. This has given us a [...]

“Be A Better Roof”

With the final design review being only 6 days away, everybody in Studio V has been working hard at developing a single, strong scheme to present to the Charleston Park Conservancy now that we are working together as a studio. In order to better prepare for our next client meeting we have decided to break [...]
