CVL Engineers Inc. was retained by Hutchings Drywall & Acoustics Inc to perform structural analysis & design the exterior steel stud walls for a two-story bottle depot being built in the Windermere subdivision in Edmonton, AB.
Exterior steel stud walls are durable, inexpensive, and lightweight, which means they’re easy to handle for construction projects. They’re also fire resistant, sound resistant, and energy-efficient. In school applications, steel is often the first choice. However, it’s important that steel studs are weighed against the weight of the wall and other resistance factors, including wind.
For this project, CVL Engineers Inc. designed the steel studs for all of the exterior walls of the building on the main floor and second floor. CVL Engineers Inc. prepared construction drawings for the exterior walls. We were also requested to provide ongoing engineering support during the construction of the school.
