Steel Stud Framing Case Study: 777 Main

Construction for the apartment conversion of downtown Hartford’s former Bank of America skyscraper has commenced, with the total steel required for this project being 1.3 million lbs (589.67 tonnes).

Studco USA have been appointed by American Masons & Building Supply Company to supply products for use in the construction and fi t out. Specifically, Studco products include Drywall Studs, CrocStud20,CrocStud16 and various accessories.26–storey skyscraper building is located at 777 Main Street, Hartford, Connecticut. Having a long history of being the headquarters of various fi nancial institutions, more recently, 777 Main Street has been recognised as the former Bank of America headquarters. With the asset being acquired by Becker & Becker Associates, Inc in March 2014, the property has since become a focal point of state and local efforts to revitalise Hartford’s downtown.


The $80 million re-development project in Hartford, Connecticut’s central business district will see the prominent Hartford skyline structure being converted from a solely commercial space to a mixed-use residential property. The plan includes for twenty percent of the apartments to be set aside as affordable housing units for low-income residents. The project also includes an existing parking structure with approximately 249 spaces and approximately 35,000 square feet of ground floor retail space. The redevelopment of 777 Main Street from vacant downtown offi ce space into 285 apartments in the 26-storey building is the largest of the efforts in Hartford to create more housing in the downtown area.
