  1. Cast in Place Basic Design Factors
    • shape if structural bay: square bays with a two way system is most efficient
    • 25' is a threshold between simple flat plates and more complex systems 
    • the most efficient option is two way flat plates if the loads are typical and the spans are not greater than 25' and bays are square
  2. Concrete Finishes
    • integral stains: mixed into the wet concrete, the color goes thoughout
    • acid stained floors: an acid wash allows the pigment to penetrate the floors, but does not go all the way through
  3. ICFs Block Construction
    • they are composed of high density polypropylene 
    • made from 100% post consumer recycled plastic
    • the plastic is totally inert; emits nothing
    • made in an insulated concrete form
  4. Factors When Choosing a Building Material
    • dreams and desires of the client
    • budget ** HUGE FACTOR
    • Material cost
    • Labor cost: will be half your budget
    • do you need special equipment: cranes, concrete pumps, the workers required to operate them
    • regular forms or irregular? 
    • minimize columns and walls (long spans)
    • Location: is it warm or cold? is mold a concern? are you trying to heat/cool passively? is there regional material available? tornadoes? hurricanes? earthquakes? 
    • minimize offsite or onsite time
    • Off site: light gauge steel framing, wood platform frame, masonry, IFCs
    • On site: Steel frame
    • Size and time: one-three story building; steel frame, heavy timber, platform frame, sips, IFCs, concrete masonry units, straw/adobe, load bearing masonry 
    • dead loads on the foundation
  5. Building Codes, Zoning, and other controlling Authorities
    in order to get started on a project you need to know the use group and the building type
