Project Summary

Overview: This project in Beechfield saw the construction of a large steel frame home. MasterSeries was used to determine the overall stability of the structure and efficiently size the steel sections. 

Points of Interest: The main challenge of this job was accounting for the alignment of the external columns, which don't align due to the overhang on the upper level. The solution was to make use of transfer beams at the 1st floor level.
