Solid Quality Construction
The Tides condos were built with details to provide as much sound proofing as possible by separation of the units and to make each condo quiet and comfortable. 10 foot ceiling heights as well as an 18" void above the sound-attenuating gypsum ceilings suspended below the concrete structure. This 18" void space provides allowance for 8" of thermal and sound insulation, additional airspace, duct work and recessed down lights. The wall systems between condos is a double stud wall system with 3 layers of 5/8" fire rated gypsum board. There are 2 separate stud walls between each unit as well as thermal insulation and the above mentioned gyp board rendering adjacent unit noise a non-issue. 8-inch post tensioned concrete floors, suspended ceilings, and dual wall systems with sound attenuation blankets and air spaces create a quiet environment.
Tides was permitted to build to a height of 80 feet, and sacrificed an additional floor in order to provide this quality of construction to its new owners.
