Deflection Bead Case Study: Kraus-Anderson Multi-Use HQ
minneapolis, mn

The Elliot Park Hotel, will be part of Kraus Anderson's new downtown Minneapolis, MN mixed-used development located between S 8th Street and 9th Street along Fifth Avenue S. The redevelopment of the former Kraus Anderson headquarters includes a new five story headquarters for Kraus Anderson along with a 17 story residential building called "H.Q.", which will include a 4 story Finnegan's Micro-Brewery.

Contractor, Olympic Companies, installed Wall-Mounted Deflection bead against the concrete deck to prevent drywall cracks from movement in the multi-story building. Deflection Bead also prevents unsightly gaps from appearing with the utilization of a flexible gasket that compresses and contracts with the movement of the building.
