Exterior Façade


Exterior Façade

Rockville Town Square

Rockville, MD

Developers updated the Rockville downtown with a new 339,000 SF five-story mixed use retail and residential building with a clad brick veneer exterior and flat roof.  SWSG structural engineers provided cold-formed steel design for the exterior wall facade.  The exterior walls were framed in cold-formed steel to  carry both wind and axial loads. The interior walls were axial load-bearing and carried a Hambro Joist concrete floor system. The lateral wind loads of the upper portion of the building were carried by light gauge steel shear walls designed by SWSG.
