PROJECT FACTS

Exposed Structure Concept

This one-story with mezzanine office building utilizes strategic use of exposed structure for aesthetics and to minimize costs.  The building uses a gravity load system of structural steel framing with exposed wood deck.  Lateral loads are resisted by wood shear panels on the curtainwall stud framing. 

Deck spans were optimized to utilize a layout of random lap continuous spans with single ply (1 ½”) tongue and groove boards.  To achieve a lateral load resisting diaphragm the roof deck with overlaid with a layer of APA sheathing.  The steel frame was detailed for cleanliness and consistency using all bolted connections.
