Abstract

The purpose of this project is to develop the design of a four-story steel building. Using different types of steel framing and construction, we recommended a specific plan of construction that is both economical and structurally sound. We also investigated different building fire safety applications in order to design and recommend a fire protection system fit for the purpose and construction of our building based on economic and fire safety factors.
