Prevalent in dense urban centers, multi-story residential towers are often built on small lots encompassed by zero lot lines. This results in tall and slender building structures, a specialty at McNamara • Salvia Coordination of the shear walls and geometry of the columns need to closely coincide with the interior layout of the residential units. Shear walls do double duty at demising walls between units for occupant privacy. With full time occupants, sway perception in higher wind zones is extremely important, so the building needs to be stiff while remaining economical.

The thickness of the floor plates is also significant and McNamara • Salvia excels at coordinating the ceiling details, mechanical ductwork and structural systems to minimize the floor-to-floor heights.
