This four-story CFS metal wall stud framed building utilizes Vulcraft’s Ecospan Composite Floor System and is unique due to the limited use of red iron steel in its framing. This was made possible by designing the integral concrete load distribution member into the load-bearing walls. In addition, the contractor effectively used “CFS Balloon Framing” on the fourth floor and roof parapet walls.
