Re: Economics of CFS Framing

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
BIll,
Depends on the intended use...  Commercial/strip mall?  Clinic?  Mini mini-storage?  Lots of openings or no openings?  Tall walls?
Could be masonry is a better option, or CFS, or wood frame, or structural steel columns and beams...

I'm trying to evaluate framing systems for a one-story building of about 1,600 m2 (17,200 ft2). I'd like to figure out if CFS is a viable consideration. At this point I think a steel joist-supported roof is the best bet although I'd certainly entertain suggestions.

Anybody hot rules of thumb for my decision matrix?
