Performed structural engineering design and detail drawings for exterior cold-formed steel wall framing for an 8-story medical center. Project presented significant challenges in adequately supporting the curtain wall systems, which were required to bear outboard of the cold-formed steel framing. Structural steel tubular shaped framing was utilized at large openings, which incorporated large eccentric loads from the support of custom Z-shaped steel plates to allow for hidden shades in all patient rooms.
