  • Is Cross-Laminated Timber (CLT) Safe?
    Is Cross-Laminated Timber (CLT) Safe?

    If you’re not building with concrete, you’re playing with fire. There’s no substitute for building with strength, and in the case of homes for families, the potential for disaster with Cross-Laminated Timber (CLT) is simply too great at this time. - Play Video

  • How ICF’s Work
    How ICF’s Work

    Consider using ICF's for your next concrete building project. With insulated concrete forms (ICFs), you get strength, flexibility and cost-efficiency all in one method. Once you use it, you’ll see why so many builders adopt the technique – and never look back. - Play Video

  • The Evolution of Chicago’s Modern Architecture
    The Evolution of Chicago’s Modern Architecture

    The Great Chicago Fire of 1871 destroyed 10,000 buildings and claimed 600 lives. This disaster led to the establishment of new building codes for the city and changed architectural thinking. Non-combustible materials replaced wood construction. Concrete works for Chicago, why shouldn't it work for you? - Play Video
