Sophy Hotel

Mid-rise buildings typically default to steel or reinforced concrete structural systems, yet recently, prefabricated, light-gauge metal, load-bearing wall systems are becoming a strong contender in the residential and hospitality markets. With proper planning, these systems can be used in buildings 10+ stories tall. During this presentation, I will review the general application of these light-gauge steel stud systems and discuss their fabrication and installation. We will examine the Sophy Hotel case study.   The building is a seven-story, ninety-five guest room luxury boutique hotel.  Structural systems are comprised of pre-fabricated light-gauge steel stud bearing walls mixed with structural steel to accommodate building column transfers, cantilevered floors, setbacks, and projecting sign elements.
