After being awarded the project to build a 113-unit assisted living facility, our client learned it would be necessary to construct it according to new city requirements.
The new city requirements mandated that structural components of the building contain no combustible materials – effectively eliminating wood framing. We proposed the use of light gauge metal framing as the load bearing system for the project. After the design was completed and approved by the city, we began assembling subcontractor pricing for the framing system, while concurrently developing a method to panelize the structural components of the building. By using our system and prefabricating the structural panels, we were able to comply with the city’s requirements and save the owner over $900,000.
