This project consists of the design, installation, and implications of steel beam to concrete wall connections. A new, modern single family home in Beverly Hills was the site of the connections. Calculations and details of gravity and drag beams were carried out, communication with the steel fabricator shop and the architect were performed, and a subsequent site visit to view construction methods was completed. Takeaways from the project were the economics of the connections designed, communication within separate disciplines on the site, and visualization of designed elements in the real-world.
