Re: Steel Bridge Framing Question

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
What have you got, two continuous units?

My first question would be "are you SURE you have to have the joint? Can you not make it a four span unit?"

I can think of reasons why not, but I don't have the whole picture.
