Conceptual Solutions

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
