LIFTbuild's process allows for the elimination of columns throughout the floor plan of your project. To demonstrate our ability to work with our partnered designers and build unique facilities for our healthcare, higher education, residential and commercial clients, we have created several representative floor plans for each market.

These plans show the impact that our approach has from the traditional construction and column view of a floor plan to the LIFTbuild floor plan utilizing our building spines. The elimination of columns creates a 4-6% improvement in net to gross ratio, resulting in uninterrupted views, flexible space design, and additional square footage for your project.

LIFTbuild projects may realize a longer life span as floorplates may be quickly reconfigured for changed uses over time if facility use or tenant needs change.
