Structural steel framing for levels 2-4 are complete. Pitched roof steel erection remains to complete steel erection as well as metal decking in sequence 3. Metal stud framing is now underway on sequence 1, with wood blocking and air barrier to follow shortly after. Fire proofing of structural steel in sequence 1will soon be complete. Interior wall framing will follow shortly. Sequence 2 Metal decks are now ready for concrete, plan on seeing plenty of concrete trucks coming in and out of site very soon!
Fire stopping is the sealing of any openings to prevent fire, smoke and heat from passing through multiple building compartments. All penetrations must be inspected by the building inspector to ensure sealing of penetration meets code. Different manufacturers provide different types of fire stopping systems. To ensure quality of product and to avoid confusion during inspection, it is a requirement that all contractors applying fire stopping systems, use the same product manufacturer. This provides consistency between all contractors and for the owner for future use.
