Engineering Better Building

Working together to incorporate new solutions to the build process, Clavalo Construction, DCI Engineers and Gurnet Point partnered with MiTek to frame an Oakland, California four-story multifamily structure in just 23 working days, shaving two months off the original schedule.

MULTIFAMILY

One Complete System

The new, easily stackable Cold-Formed Steel Picture Frame distributes compression over more wall length and provides lateral load resistance and uplift forces over multiple floors.
  • Cut down on overall project completion costs.
  • Leverage products that are easy to deliver and install.
  • Reduce the variables in the construction sequence to stay ahead of schedule.
  • Cut your cycle time and avoid schedule delays with this offsite solution.
  • Solve framing challenges that develop as a result of structural framing required around large openings.

Value to You

FRAMER / GC

  • Simple to install
  • Assembly does not require welding
  • Removes the need for multiply built up timber columns required as part of a threaded rod tie down system
  • Open shape allows access for other trades and systems such as electrical boxes and insulation

 

DESIGN PROFESSIONALS

  • Cold formed steel moment frame is more economical than a hot rolled steel moment frame
  • Engineered for predictable performance during a seismic or high wind event
  • Designed to make incorporation into a wood framed structure simple and easy
  • Replaces large timber compression posts with open shape steel columns
  • CFS is one member of a full spectrum of lateral system products

 

BUILDING OWNERS / DEVELOPERS / BUILDERS

  • Flexibility in architectural design while also meeting the complex design challenges a lateral system requires.
  • Speed in project completion through partnering CFS with other offsite manufactured products such as wall panels, floor cassettes, roof trusses, etc.

 

Multifamily Solutions

The patented Cold Formed Steel solution provides the freedom to maximize the value window and door openings provide. Distribute stress throughout the building more effectively.

Trade-Friendly

With the efficient use of material, easy installation, and a cavity that facilitates easy access for other trades, the lateral frame is perfect for wood frame construction.

Everything was fabricated offsite…so crane it into place, install with the union carpenters and walk away.
