CFSEI Award for Innovative Design: Pittsburgh Piatt Place Apartments

Pittsburgh, PA – SWSG provided structural engineering services for the design of shear walls, load-bearing walls, and floor/roof joists with cold-form steel to convert a 4-story retail building into a 7-story residential condominium. Floors were designed as diaphragms to transfer lateral loads to inwardly located shear walls so exterior walls could be fitted with the maximum amount of windows. SWSG received an award for Innovative Design from the Cold-Formed Steel Engineers Institute.
