Galvanized cold-formed metal stud wall panels are individually designed to meet local wind, seismic and snow loads. At a minimum, the exterior panels are fabricated with sheathing, continuous insulation and water/vapor barriers at the factory. Installation of windows, exterior façade and trim can be factory installed depending on project requirements.
Shear Walls / Interior Walls
Galvanized, cold-formed metal stud wall panels are left unsheathed to allow for onsite MEP rough-ins and installation of finishes once the area is enclosed from nature’s elements.
Composite metal decking system with poured in place concrete depicted. Depending on the layout of the building and project requirements, we offer several floor assemblies to best fit each unique project. Other floor assembly options include composite metal dovetail decking with concrete, composite joist system consisting of bar joists with metal decking and concrete topping, panelized cold-formed “C-Joist” framing system with metal decking and gypcrete, or structural cement panels and pre-cast plank with concrete topping.
Structural wall panels are mechanically fastened to the concrete slab.
Edge of Deck
Various pour stops are designed and installed on-site to facilitate load transfer and expedite construction.
The metal studs have knockouts, which allow for MEP rough-ins and running of wires and piping within the wall.
Exterior and interior panels are shop panelized with properly sized openings to receive windows, doors, and louvers. This eliminates on-site framing, reducing cost and improving construction schedule.
Cold-formed trusses are non-combustible, allowing for a Type IIB building, reducing the need for additional fire resistance rated protection. Flat roofs can be constructed utilizing metal roof deck, bearing on walls below; panelized cold-formed “C-joists” framing system with metal decking; bar joist and metal decking; or metal decking with concrete topping.
