Full Session with Abstracts
Lochsa Engineering is a structural engineering consultant that is involved with a collaborative team (Done-Modular Space Through Innovation) that are currently designing and constructing 100% Cold-Formed Steel (CFS) Modular Elements to create an efficient alternative to traditional construction methods. The concept of the design is to create a lightweight, non-combustible, more cost-effective alternative to wood and red iron framed modules. Each unit is made entirely of CFS that includes roof, walls and floor and is coordinated with mechanical, electrical and plumbing trades to install as many elements as possible in the shop prior to shipping to the construction site. This is an ideal approach for multi-story/mid-rise buildings.
