A 4,000 sq. ft. mezzanine was constructed in this new building using the FORTECO Lightweight Composite Floor Framing System. The floor framing featured heavy floor loading requirements of 125 psf and a 5’ cantilever over the block support wall.
The FORTECO Floor Framing was panelized for this project and installed in a fraction of the time it takes to install standard structural steel framing This 43,000 sq. st. building was designed and engineered by Jendusa Design & Engineering , the engineering company owned by the Founder of Forteco Framing Co.
FORTECO framing used fully engineered, assembles panels. The panels can be individually handled and placed in position. This made the construction much simpler.
FORTECO frames are light weight. The metal studs were enough to bear the frame. This is an advantage for constructing floors using FORTECO, as there is no requirement to build an extensive load bearing structure.
