Four-story, 360,000 sf Commercial Building with a 42’ High 4th Floor

  • To meet structural and drift requirements for an elevated 42’ story height between the 3rd floor and main roof due to theater stadium seating requirements without the need for mid-story height framing
  • Project budget and schedule precluded the use of other connection systems without additional testing due to SAC’s imposed limitations on the extent of their prequalification
  • SidePlate’s inherently increased connection stiffness, coupled with its unique advantage of unlimited column depth prequalification (W36x393 max size used), satisfied the challenge
  • Use of Dogbone moment connection exceeded its 300-lb/ft beam weight limitation
