The development of a Conceptual Solution is a complimentary service provided by the Steel Solutions Center to demonstrate the viability of a steel framing system for a specific project. The Steel Solutions Center will evaluate the project requirements and develop a solution to meet those requirements using a structural steel system for the proposed building or bridge layout.
A Conceptual Solution can include:
Framing system comparisons based on economy, ease of erection and project schedule
Floor framing bay studies and optimized column layouts
Evaluation of steel framing systems for project specific requirements including low floor-to-floor heights and vibration
Member sizes and steel quantities based on past framing studies
