I do not  what is a CFS  but Pre-cast tilt up walls is a possibility.

Subject: Economics of CFS Framing


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?
