Mid-rise Cost Comparison (Wood/Steel/Concrete)
This is the first case study of its kind that analyzes four different building types of equal structural and architectural design and identifies the cost discrepancies associated with each one. The building types are as follows:
- 5 Storeys of Wood + 1 podium of Concrete
- 6 Storeys of Steel
- 6 Storeys of Concrete
- 6 Storeys of Wood
A 3rd party team of professionals was assembled to review and vet each building type to ensure equitable structural and architectural design. The elemental class “C” costing detail of each building type can be downloaded below. The conservative conclusion is that wood construction is roughly 12% less cost than that of Steel or Concrete.
