Framing on the Second floor continues at the Sigma Nu Fraternity House project on the campus of North Carolina State University.  Walls are up on the 2nd floor, and 60% of floor trusses have been set in place.  Some large beams consisting of 16″ deep LVL’s and 1″ thick steel plates took some doing, but are installed.

On the 1st floor, the steel beams received spray-on fire proofing.

Next week, framing begins on the 1st floor and 3rd floor, possibly including roof trusses.
