Encanto at Dos Lagos

Cost-effective solutions from Hardy Frame® Shear Wall Systems and USP Structural Connectors contributed greatly to the success of a 1,200-apartment, 47-unit luxury apartment development.


465 shear walls installed. $250,000 worth of USP hangers, connectors, and straps.

Mission accomplished: the complex, cost-effective, code-compliant Encanto development was complete after eight months of careful budgeting and collaboration. “We depend on our relationship with MiTek to give our clients the edge to compete in their markets,” says Holmes of Madera Components.

“Encanto used many products from USP Structural Connectors, plus the 465 Hardy Frames Shear Walls,” said Landon Boucher, regional sales manager for MiTek. “When you have an order that large, with structures in different phases over an eight month period, the delivery of MiTek Builder Products has to be right on time, every time.” ….Mission accomplished. 


Building cost-effective solutions for a luxury market can be a challenge. With Hardy Frames Shear Walls and other MiTek Builder Products, and coordination between the material dealer, the CM, the engineer, and the framer, a complex project came together.
