This large distribution center utilizes a hybrid steel and wood design, as is typical of many large projects in the Western US. The steel joists were manufactured with a wood nailer installed on the top chord to allow for easy installation of a wood deck system. Any other structural system in place of the steel joists would have been uneconomical. The Joist Girder and LH-Series joists provided a fast, economical system while allowing for wood decking.
