Faster start-up since minimal lead time to order materials.
Earlier occupancy of building due to faster start-up, concurrent scheduling of construction trades, and easy adaptation to on-site changes.
Construction disbursements reflect in-place progress; no mill order thus up-front costs are minimized.
Increased floor area per building volume. Concrete framing systems yield the shallowest framing systems thus reduce floor-to-floor heights. In multi-story buildings, this translates into more floors per building.
Eliminates costs associated with fireproofing, ceiling systems, vibration control, and sound control.

Numerous framing systems available address wider range of tenant needs: column-free, irregularities in column locations, vibration-free, and increased security.
Architectural expression is limitless due to rainbow of colors, textures and shapes which can be created.
No spray-fireproofing to contend with during tenant modifications.
Maximizes floor area per building site – a plus in areas with building height restrictions.
Reduced utility expenditures due to concrete’s thermal mass.
Reduced insurance costs due to superior performance in fire, severe weather, seismic activity and blast.
Reduced maintenance costs for exposed surfaces – interior and exterior.
