The intent of this project was to design a structure that would be constructed of modular steel frame pieces. This steel frame system could have several applications, however, the focus of this project was in designing a single-family residence. The team aimed to create a steel frame structure that has the capability to withstand a wide range of weather conditions and environmental loads. The design of this structure was carried out in accordance with a number of codes and standards, namely the International Building Code, ASCE 7-16, and the American Iron and Steel Institute. In designing with cold formed steel, the team hoped to create a reliable and resilient structure that could be erected efficiently and serve several different purposes, including disaster relief shelters and increase housing supply.
