The Residences at Pacific City is a 700,000 SF multifamily development featuring 516 beach-luxe apartment homes on 31 coastal acres in Huntington Beach, CA. With its proximity to the iconic Huntington Beach Pier and world famous surf spots as well as exclusive use of Smart Components (not one conventional shear wall was specified), this innovative project evokes the true essence of “shear” California cool.
Utilizing Smart Components helped the project team make more efficient use of job site labor and raw materials. According to the initial feedback from the general contractor, using prefabricated structural components will result in an estimated 75% less job site waste when comparing a job of similar size. Now that’s maximizing your green building strategy.
