Margulies Hoelzli Architecture has partnered with TGE Construction to provide architectural design services for development projects nationwide that implement TGE’s innovative method of delivering mid and high rise buildings. Top DownSM type construction flips traditional ground-up construction on its head by constructing entire floor plates at ground level before lifting into place. MHA is working with TGE on developing solutions for residential, hospitality and mixed-use projects that utilize the TGE approach while maximizing efficiency and ROI.
TGE Construction was founded by structural engineer and industry pioneer Dr. Charles H. Thornton, along with Jeffrey Grillo and Daniel Esparza, based upon Dr. Thornton’s Top DownSM technology platform and building approach. The senior personnel at MHA have worked with Dr. Thornton for more than 20 years, initially at Thornton Tomasetti, within TT’s multi-disciplinary division, and subsequently on joint projects that leveraged both firms’ expertise.
