Swirnow, Hambro® and Structure Magazine!

Structure Magazine, a joint publication of the National Council of Structural Engineers Associations (NCSEA), ASCE's Structural Engineering Institute (SEI), and the Council of American Structural Engineers (CASE), quotes Russell Boellner, Vice President of Production for Swirnow Building Systems, in an article in the April 2006 issue.

Written by John "Buddy" Showalter, P.E., the article highlights an important change to the 2006 International Building Code (2006 IBC) that permits wood framing to support structural concrete.

Boellner expressed his satisfaction with the change and said, "A number of large national builders like to use wood framing, and recognize the advantages provided by a composite system like Hambro joists and concrete. Such a system on wood combines the benefits of wood stud walls and the sound and fire ratings of a composite concrete floor."
