I am designing a 3 story storage bldg. in SDC D. At parking area, I have beams spanning 35 ft and are supporting two floors above them. Currently, the route I am taking is to have SMF as my lateral resisting system but it is involving lots of special detailing ( which Im not familiar with) and is too expensive. So I was wondering if there are any other options?
Thank you so much for your help!
