At The Retreat, LB/A utilized a simple modular dimensional system that allowed the entire building to be constructed with two-floor joist shapes and two roof truss shapes. Kitchens and bathrooms were standardized, room dimensions were established based on standard material and product dimensions to minimize waste and allow for speed of construction.
Lantz Boggio / Architects was able to deliver a design and construction solution that was 14% below average market construction costs.
Electrical and mechanical systems and fixtures were selected based on proven performance and economy. This repetition of systems and materials creates cost efficiencies in material and labor while shortening construction schedules and lowering construction loan interest costs.
