Circa 922 Receives the Crystal Key Award

13 January 2016

Circa 922 was among the winners at the Key Awards - put on by the Home Builders Association of Greater Chicago - bringing home a Crystal Key for Innovation and Creativity for Technical Innovation. The project's architect - FitzGerald and Associates submitted the entry, which focused on the building’s Girder-Slab structural system–the first time used in Chicago–which was chosen for its value, speed of erection, and low floor-to-floor heights. Girder-Slab is a prefabricated system of modified steel girders that allow precast concrete slabs to sit within the channel between beams–rather than on top of those beams–so floor-to-floor heights are greatly reduced. As a result, the building includes an additional floor in the same overall building height when compared to traditional steel structure design.
