Background Information
  • Estimated total cost of $42.5 million

original structural design
Original Structural Design
  • Floor system: Two-way flat slab with drops
  • Lateral system: Concrete frames
  • Foundation: Spread footings
  • Floor to floor height: 11’-6”
  • Total plenum depth: 36” leaving 8’-6” floor to ceiling heights
possible problems
Possible Problems
  • Columns in office space
  • Long schedule for concrete due to:

forming,

reinforcing,

pouring,

stripping,

shoring, and

reshoring

solutions
Solutions
  • Use Fy = 50 ksi steel above grade in office spaces:
    • May speed up the schedule
    • Can get rid of columns in the office space while keeping the building the same size
  • Different systems tried:
    • Steel beams and girders with composite deck
    • Steel joists and girders with composite deck
    • Composite beams and girders with composite deck
design criteria
Design Criteria
  • Basis:
    • International Building Code (IBC 2000)
    • American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE 7-98)
    • Load and Resistance Factor Design

(LRFD Second Edition)

  • Building Criteria:
    • Floor to floor height remains 11’-6”
    • Minimal impact on architecture and interiors
    • Cost
    • Schedule
selection of new system
Selection of New System
  • Non-composite steel members deflect too much over the new 50’ span; resulting in very deep members and enlarge plenum
  • Joists are very difficult to fireproof; resulting in added labor costs
  • Composite steel system preliminary sizes allow the plenum to remain the same size

Try a new floor design using composite steel.

composite steel design
Composite Steel Design
  • Slab (Information from United Steel Deck Manual):
    • Light weight concrete
    • 5” total thickness
    • 16 gauge, 24” wide, 1.5” Lok-Floor
    • Reasons selected:
      • Used on 2 or 3 spans no shoring is required under 10’
      • Meets fire rating requirements of 2 hours without added fire protection
composite steel design12
Composite Steel Design
  • Typical beam:
    • Spaced at 10’ on center
    • Spans 30’
    • LL = 100 psf (including partition loads)
    • DL = 50 psf
    • Resulting beam:
      • W16x26 (16) camber = 1.0”
      • Deflection due to wet concrete = 1.0”
      • L/360 limit is 1.0”
      • Live load deflection after composite action is less than 0.9”
      • No Shoring Required

Composite Steel Design
  • Typical girder:
    • Spaced at 30’ on center
    • Spans 50’
    • LL = 100 psf (including partition loads)
    • DL = 50 psf
    • Resulting beam:
      • W30x116 (104) camber = 1.25”
      • Deflection due to wet concrete = 1.48”
      • L/360 limit is 1.67”
      • Live load deflection after composite action is less than 1.60”
      • No Shoring Required
composite steel design14
Composite Steel Design
  • Typical column:
    • Factored loads
      • Roof Load = 105psf
      • Reduced Live Load = 65psf except 85psf top floor
      • Total Load = 1310k at bottom floor
    • Typical sizes: W14x120 and W14x132
composite steel design15
Composite Steel Design
  • Typical change in spread footing:
    • Flat slab concrete design:
      • 8’-0” square by 46” deep
    • Composite steel design:
      • 6’-6” square by 36” deep
    • Savings of 5 to 15 yards of concrete for every footing
composite steel design16
Composite Steel Design

Typical floor cross section:

Structural and duct system fit tightly into the 36” plenum space with an inch to spare

lateral system
Lateral System
  • Without concrete frames a new problem arises:
    • What will the new lateral system be?
      • Shear walls: Height of the building creates moments that are difficult for the shear walls to resist
      • Braced frames: Limited number of locations, but can work with relatively large members
lateral system and center of rigidity
Lateral System and Center of Rigidity

All frames are cross braced with 2L8x8x1-1/8 and 2L4x4x3/4 horizontally and vertically respectively

fire protection breadth
Fire Protection Breadth
  • Changing to steel requires new fire protection measures for the structure
    • Spray on fire proofing is quick and easy
  • Basis:
    • Underwriters Laboratories Inc. (UL)

Directory of Fire Resistance Vol. 1

ANSI/UL 263

fire protection breadth21
Fire Protection Breadth
  • Building Criteria:
    • 2 hr. rated floor construction (including beams)
    • 3 hr. rated column coverage
  • Solution:
    • Slab: USD manual and Design # D916 in UL
      • 16 gauge, 24” wide, 1.5” Lok-Floor
      • 3.5” LW concrete above flutes, no additional fireproofing
    • Beams and Girders: Design # D916 in UL
      • 0.75” Spray-on fireproofing
      • 0.33” Fireproofing on lower flange edge to allow slightly more room in plenum
fire protection breadth22
Fire Protection Breadth
  • Solution:
    • Columns: Design # Y724 in UL
      • 1.75” Spray-on fireproofing
  • Acceptable products for both columns and beams by:
    • WR Grace & Co. – Conn.
    • Construction Products Div.
    • Grace Korea Inc.
construction breadth
Construction Breadth
  • Assumptions in estimating costs and scheduling
    • R.S. Means 2003
    • One crew designated by Means used for each item unless noted otherwise
    • All material, labor, and equipment costs are included
    • Broken into steel members, slab, deck, wire fabric, steel studs, and fire proofing
construction breadth24
Construction Breadth
  • Cost analysis (structure above grade):
    • Initial concrete cost: $5,989,000
      • $18.34 / sq.ft.
    • Initial steel cost: $4,559,000
      • $13.96 / sq.ft.
    • Total Savings: $1,430,000
      • $4.38 / sq.ft.
construction breadth new schedule
Construction BreadthNew Schedule
  • Steel members erected 37 pieces per day leaving a 20 day float
  • Wire fabric is the critical item taking 96 days
construction breadth new schedule26
Construction Breadth New Schedule
  • Shear studs are erected in two phases to stay ahead of concrete and behind steel erection
  • Total duration is 106 days and is 34 work days less than the original concrete schedule
conclusion
Conclusion
  • Steel is erected faster (one months extra rent may be charged)
  • Steel is cheaper by 24%
  • Composite steel system eliminates columns in office spaces
  • Redesign is succesful
recommendations
Recommendations
  • Based on cost and scheduling choose composite steel and composite deck system in above grade office spaces
  • Investigate use of similar system in below grade parking deck, savings may not be as great due to lower loads and less premium space
