COMPRESS THE CRITICAL PATH

All Steel Mid-Rise offers a true “turn-key” structural shell packages, eliminating any coordination and assembly confusion. All Steel provides cold-formed steel (CFS) structural solutions utilizing the highest quality products, at the lowest possible cost, while maintaining the building code requirements. According to most building code requirements, wood framing is typically not permissible over 4 stories, and traditional red iron or concrete structures amass great weight and cost, therefore making CFS framing ideal for structures. All Steel's CFS framing solutions are permitted for mid-rise structural framing up to 12 stories, or 180 feet. Beginning with project specifications, engineering, and design flexibility, All Steel works closely with the contractor to ensure that the framing shell is successfully achieved within budget and on time.

ADVANTAGES TO USING COLD-FORMED STEEL

  • Quick Installation; Crew of 8 Erects 6,000 SF per Week on Average
  • 50% Lighter than Typical Structures; Lower Foundation & Labor Costs
  • Sustainable; LEED Contributions, Recycled Content, Less Waste
  • Trade Friendly; Integrated Coordination & Management Process
  • Lower Insurance Costs; ≥$4/SF Less Over 10 Years, Comparatively to Wood
  • High Acoustical Ratings; STC Ratings Up to 58, IIC Ratings Up to 81
  • Design Flexibility to Conform to Project Budget
  • Non-Combustible; Third Party UL Test Data & Reports
  • Low Maintenance; Eliminates Call Backs, Resistant to Fungus & Mold
  • Off-Site Fabrication; Less Debris, Manpower, Equipment & Waste
  • Optimal for 4 - 12 Story Residential & Hospitality Mid-Rise Structures
  • Long Lasting Structural Integrity; Increased Resale Value

COMPARING SYSTEMS

The All Steel Mid-Rise Timberless Systems are all non-combustible and among the lightest, yet strongest options available on the market today. Because All Steel Systems are lighter than traditional planks and slabs, construction requires less material and labor, resulting in less overall cost.

Building quickly with small crews and standardized assemblies

QUICK. LIGHTWEIGHT. EFFECIENT.

Cold-formed steel framing can be erected quickly with a small crew. On average, a crew of 9 guys can erect approximately 6,000 SF per week. A crew consists of 3 teams of 2-3 tradespeople per team (teams 1-3), a crane operator, and an on the ground supervisor for support.  

The standard assembly of framing members allows the crew to continually maintain work without stoppages, to increase efficiency and ultimately build faster for the client.

Quality control at the off-site manufacturing facility ensures members are exact and square prior to arriving onsite. Wall and floor framing systems arrive on-site labeled in the order of installation sequence.

Building process

Build Steps

Team 1:
positions and sets the wall panel lifted directly from the flatbed by the crane.

Team 2:
places and secures the joists on walls.

Team 3:
lays and fastens the metal decking to the joists.

Team 1:
then continues the cycle by positioning and setting the panels on the next floor above.
