2020 CFSEI Virtual Expo – Load Bearing Cold-Formed – 10 Stories and Beyond

Continuing Education Credits Available – 1.5 PDH Credits

The opportunity for market expansion of cold-formed steel is not in building fewer stories and encroaching on the wood market. It lies instead on building taller and flipping idealized post-tensioned and steel-framed structures to load bearing cold-formed.

This presentation will provide the design tools, recommendations, and strategies for safely exceeding 10 stories. Various gravity and lateral systems will be discussed, including the pros/cons and details of construction. The presentation will address the following questions:

  • What will I have to do differently when compared with my typical 6-8 story building?
  • How can I get the most out of my studs for gravity?
  • Are there additional material checks I need to consider?
  • What are the limitations of my lateral system?
  • Are there special considerations for seismic and wind that do not control at shorter heights?
  • What are the pitfalls and other design checks that usually do not control design?

Cody Dailey, M.S., P.E., S.E. is Vice President of Structural Services for McClure Engineering Company based in Missouri, Iowa, and Kansas and practicing in 48 states. He has over 16 years of experience designing cold-formed systems throughout the country. He has a background specifically in non-bearing exterior framing, curved structural cold-formed, multiple types of floor systems, panelized construction, tall multi-story (10+) drift controlled cold-formed hybrid lateral systems, blast-resistant cold-formed, and DOD progressive collapse. He has overseen multiple projects around the country of 10 stories and taller, including 13 stories in high seismic.
