Today we remember the life of iSPAN Systems' founder, Mike Strickland. Mike founded iSPAN in 2003 based on the desire to simplify cold-form steel framing. Mike was a passionate leader of the business up until 2017 and then continued to work with iSPAN in recent years as a valued advisor.
As someone who has dedicated their life to improving systems and the infrastructure we live and work in every day, you as an engineer could greatly benefit from the many new ways cold-formed steel is being used to construct the buildings of tomorrow.
When contractors dream, they visualize ways that they can build better homes. This commitment to discovering new ways to build brought together two of the best building materials in the world: ICF and TotalJoist.
If you are a contractor seeking new ways to save time, money and frustration, consider cold-formed steel structural systems.
We explain the options you have with TotalJoist, and how the steel joist can be used with wood framing, steel framing, masonry and ICF.
By using cold-formed steel in your hotel, you will receive fewer complaints, provide a modern design that will last decades, reduce the time to occupancy with a reduced construction schedule, and even help to lower your long-term heating/cooling expenses.
Whether you’re interested in steel floor joists, floor decking solutions and/or complete prefabricated walls, there’s never been a better time for architects to consider cold-formed steel for your next hotel project.
When you construct using cold-formed steel and concrete blocks, builders will have a superior structure with load-bearing walls and sturdy floors. Let’s dig deeper!
