Likewise here in non-shakey land, it is done quite often and it makes sense where you can keep most of the gravity load moments confined to the beams.

For a two story steel moment frame, a contractor is requesting to have the floor beam frame on top of the first floor column, and the second floor column frame on top of the beam, as opposed to the column being continuous
and the beams attaching to the side of the column. what do you guys think?
