Project Description
Three story precast, 56,000 sq. ft. office building.

Tru-Frame® Value Added:
Building was originally designed as conventional moment frame wideflange construction. We converted only the moment frame elements on the project and reduced the weight of the frame members by 43%, saving more than $250,000 in steel costs or about $4.50/sq. ft. This also saved significant money in the foundation costs, expedited steel to site and dramatically reduced overall erection time. Required minimal re-design costs since majority on framing remained as originally drawn.
