Abstract:
A design for a multistory building using the same slab thickness for every floor, the same size of columns in all stories, and shear walls to the height required by the designer represents a remarkable approach to the assembly line factory methods in the construction industry. Remarkable economies can be achieved when the work is done by a contractor who has great organizing talents.
