BFC 43003 - STRUCTURAL STEEL AND TIMBER D IGN 

PROJECT 
D IGN OF A 3-STOREY FRAME 
 

Introduction 

This project cover the design of a 3-storey braced steel-framed building. In particular, it 
should gives detailed design for primary and secondary beams, an internal column, truss 
members and a number of different connection types. 

 
 
 

Figure  1  shows  detail  of  the  3-storey  building,  representing  a  small,  2-storey  office 
development constructed over a showroom. 

Figure 1 Typical cross-section 

  

  

  

  

 

 
 

Figure 2 shows a typical part plan. Details of the construction are follows: 

1. Floor (office use) – Raised floor on 125 mm concrete on profiled metal decking 

2. External wall – Proprietary cladding 

3. Fire protection – 4 hour fire rating between ground floor and 1st floor 

- 2 hour fire rating between 1st floor and roof 

4. Bracing – The building is braced against side-sway
