Engineering & Design
Per the ASCE 7-10 the American Institute of Steel Construction steel members are designed to carry a very specific load. It is up to the sealing professional engineer to determine what percentage of the max load each member will support in the building system. As a standard, we only load to 80% of design maximum. The end result is a stronger, heavier building that is more capable of surviving extreme weather events. Many companies looking to cut corners will design to 100% or even 110%, resulting in a lighter (and therefore cheaper to manufacture) building. It is buildings like these that fail in heavy snow or wind events. Think their “warranty” will cover a failure due to snow, wind, or earthquake? Guess again! Read the fine print. Building warranties only cover structural defects, like cracked welds due to “normal” conditions not 50 or 100 year storm events.
New Braunfels Contracting will not leave a wall inadequately braced. Regardless of what other companies may tell you, panel shear bracing (using wall panels as lateral bracing), torsional bracing, or strap bracing is never sufficient, ever! If cable or rod bracing will not work in a side wall due to openings, we will use a portal frame to supply the necessary bracing. If a rigid frame is needed in an endwall, we won’t lessen it’s building with a rod to frame brace. You will receive the necessary iron to do the job right!
