The Mino-B project is a 5-story wood apartment building over 2 levels of precast concrete.  The upper 5 floors are larger 2 and 3-bedroom units, while the level below the podium was raised to allow for more amenities and services for the occupants. 

During the design phase, we worked with the architectural team to come up with multiple concepts for framing the exterior features to keep the project within budget.
