Construction Type

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
The following  construction types appear in section 05120 of the masterspec.


B. Construction: Type FR, fully restrained; Type 2, simple framing.

C. Construction: Type PR, partially / FR, fully restrained.

D. Construction: Type 1, rigid frame. / 2, simple framing. / 3, semirigid framing.

Can I get a consensus on the definition of each type and what kind of buildings they would typically apply to? Such as a two story steel framed structure w/PR-FMC connections or a 1 story masonry shear wall structure with CFMF trusses.


Thank You
