The Graham Residence was built using the revolutionary Blue Sky Frame, a product of Blue Sky Building Systems. This is what is known as a factory fabricated, bolted, bi-directional moment frame made from cold-formed, high-tensile galvanized steel and structural steel components.
The elements are prefabricated in a factory, shipped flat to the job site and are then rapidly bolted together. No cutting or drilling on site, and no site welding. The result is a much faster build time, closer tolerances, more durable materials and enhanced environmental credentials.
This frame is superbly suited for projects on steep or uneven lots or those where a raised foundation and/or large open space is desired. Known as a bi-directional moment-resisting frame, it resists movement in two directions and eliminates the need for shear walls or load bearing walls.
While moment frames are not unusual, Blue Sky's has a number of unique attributes that make it especially beneficial for many construction projects.
With the Blue Sky Frame architects have increased flexibility in terms of room layouts and the placement of windows and doors. Additionally it offers a far thinner roof profile than wood framing or heavy structural steel beams where larger open spans are required.
