Building with Steel is a three-part e-book that explores the design capabilities of steel for structural support, roofs, and façades. This curated collection of technical articles from The Construction Specifier illustrates:
- how diagonal steel braces enabled the design team to maximize the usable floor space of the Mark, a 48-story commercial office and hotel tower in downtown Seattle;
- common areas of concern for steel decks and joists such as uplift value, rollover forces, fatigue design, diaphragm capacity, cantilevers, and welds; and
- how the inherent corrosion resistance of stainless steel makes it possible to restore surfaces even after years of neglect.
