Our last update for Third Floor Concrete Placement for building in Ecorse Michigan was on Sep-29-2006.

The bonus room roof trusses consist of light-gage metal construction. The roof trusses are formed with rafters with a 12 in 12 pitch with a collar tie. Bonus room is created by using knee walls on both sides. The base of the rafters is supported on the concrete floor which forms the bottom chord of the truss.

The building is being rebuilt as an energy efficient building with ICF walls all the way to the Third Floor. In the following I present some picture slides. The pictures of the roof trusses under construction was taken during my Field Visit of Nov-08-2006.

This picture is taken from on top of the Third Floor. The photograph shows the collar ties of the roof trusses. The knee walls on both sides are non-structural and will be to create the space for the bonus room. Floor

Here is another picture from atop the Third Floor. In the picture, on the collar-ties I have overlaid the rafters of the bonus room trusses and an outline of the concrete floor which for the analysis and design model forms the bottom chord of the truss.
