The Tower at PNC Plaza

The award-winning Tower at PNC Plaza is a 34-story commercial building in Pittsburgh, PA. The headquarters of PNC Bank, the tower has a unique natural ventilation feature that contributes to its sustainability. IDS detailed the steel above level 34 of this impressive high- rise structure that houses over 800,000 square feet of commercial office space, with joints that are composed of numerous complex moment connections due to sloping and skewed steel columns, beams, and bracing support for the roof frame. The Tower (Above Level 34) was featured in the February 2016 issue of Modern Steel Construction.
