Bluffton Centre

Project Description

Bluffton, SC (in progress).
SM7, Architect.
South Coast, Contractor.

Multi-office medical facility serving growing demand in larger Bluffton region.

In collaboration with the architect on the 29E6-Step Process, we provided an ideal structural system. Three buildings utilized steel construction framework with open web bar roofing joists. The lateral system, ordinary moment frames (OMF), allowed maximum flexibility of architecture for the current design as well as future modifications. Through keen understanding of codes we were able to utilize ordinary moment frames (OMF) in lieu of intermediate moment frames (IMF) – a small difference with big cost savings through efficient engineering.
