Façade Support System Detailing

  • 14 May 2019
  • 11:45 AM - 1:00 PM
  • Maggiano's Little Italy North Park



Detailing the miscellaneous steel required to support today’s different types of facades is challenging.  This presentation will help guide the practicing structural engineer to provide details in his/her Contract Documents that will be constructable, perform well over time, and be coordinated with the architectural details. 


We will specifically look at:

·         Creating details that provide adequate field tolerances

·         Ensuring there is proper resistance to rotation in these details

·         Address deflection criteria for different system

·         Proper jointing in our details to allow thermal movement changes


Those in attendance should obtain a better comprehension of how to detail façade support steel for multi-story buildings, and to be sure the primary structure is properly sized to carry the additional façade loads.
