NOTE #2:  These prices are for non-residential use.  If you intend to occupy these towers as a residential use, there are different requirements that need to be addressed which change many things in the tower design.  Towers for residential use will be priced on an hourly basis individually.  Please See Building Code & Geologic Notes.

NOTE #3:  The prices above are for a basic tower.  Noted below are additional costs for various features you can add to the tower.  Because of space limitations, stairs are often very difficult to integrate into the tower and the design of the stairs may cost more than the tower design as they are custom designed for each application.  Exterior stairs are much easier.
