The evaluation criteria for this project were based on flexibility, speed of construction, value and aesthetic.
This project is the recipient of the Steel Joist Institute’s 2012 Design Award in the non-industrial category.
The special features on this project are two-slope joists, some of which are 66 ft long, that rise above the church and sanctuary. Their use has resulted in cost savings, a significant reduction in assembly time and have allowed for greater flexibility in the organization of space.
This project included 44 long span joists, 17 of which were 138DLHSP spanning over 66 ft with top chord extension on each end. Also, 28KCS joists at the vestibule, which supported the RTU units. Many of the long span joists were bridged with “X” bolted bridging while the short spans had standard horizontal bridging.
CSC supplied joists supported on masonry walls and the steel roof deck that was installed over the steel joists. Area: 16,500 ft².
