EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
This report summarizes the findings for the design of a multi-storey steel building using the BS
5950 part 1- 2000, BS 6399 part 1- 1996, BS 684- 1964, BS 6399 part 1- 1984 and the CP 3
chapter V part 2- 1972 done by students of Civ 428 (Structural Steel Design), carried out on
behalf of Mr. Marlon Daniels (lecturer at the University of Guyana). The site have not be located
but can be assumed to be somewhere on the coast of Guyana.
The objective of this design is to enable the student to identify and provide a first order
assessment on the variability of the loading conditions as required by the client i.e. Mr. Marlon
Daniels. The results obtained will help to establish the design of the various members of the
proposed structure being designed using the BS 5950 part 1-2000 codes etc. This can provide
qualitative information for planning purposes.
Further interpolation and interpretation of engineering properties in this report is beyond the
scope of this project. Professional knowledge and interpretation should be sought from a
qualified structural engineer. The load analysis and design of the structure was for a two-way
spanning floor system. Designing of beams, columns, base plates and connections form the core
of elementary steel design. According to the requirements, this report furnishes the design and
calculation of laterally supported and laterally unsupported beams, a column, the column base
plate and bolt connection. The following are the results of design:

INTRODUCTION
Structural steelwork can be either a single member or an assembly of a number of steel sections
connected together in such a way that they perform a specified function. The function required
by a client or owner will vary enormously but may include: building frames, bridges, temporary
supports, etc.
The objective of this project is to enhance the students’ knowledge of the use of the Design
Code, BS 5950 part 1, 2000. As requested by Mr. Marlon Daniels, lecturer of CIV 428
(Structural Steel Design), this project entails the design of a proposed multi-storey Steel
building, designing of members where necessary. The specification for this building was given
by Mr. Marlon Daniels. The specification had been a multi-storey building to cater for a Movie
Theater, a Game Arcade, and a Supermarket. The initial stage of the project involved coming up
with an adequate size to cater for the standard size of a modern day movie theater and then the
member sizes and analyzing of the design. The loading conditions were calculated using dead
and live loading conditions. From the analysis, members were designed. Detailed structural
drawings have been provided in the appendix.
The design codes used to accomplish the project are:-

Materials
• Materials for the works will be procured by means of cash purchases and credit facilities
available to the contractor from various suppliers.
• Stockpiling of GH piles, fine aggregate, coarse aggregates, reinforcements, excavated
clay, and steel members etc. will be done at suitable location within the limits of the site. The
areas for stockpiling will be inspected prior to stockpiling to determine proximity to the site and
freeness of ruinous materials.
Construction of Multi-Storey Building
General: The structure will be constructed and finished in accordance with the procedures
described below.
(i) Site clearance/ marking-out & material testing: The limits of the site will be cleared
of all vegetation and maintained during the period of construction. The area to be
occupied by the building will then be marked-out and an in situ test executed in order
to analyse the soil profile.
(ii) Excavation: Prior to pile driving, the selected area will be excavated and levelled to a
surface smooth enough to execute works.
(iii) Pile driving and capping: Piles will be driven, in accordance with the results obtained
from the in situ test, to an approximate depth of 19m avoiding as much vibration as
possible. The type of mechanism to be utilised for driving is the jack hammer. Further
these piles will be driven in groups, with the total number of piles being 300 (nr). The
piles will be designed to resist uplift and to support the full weight of the structure
above. After driving, the piles will be capped with slabs of thickness 450mm.
(iv) Sand filling: Using suitable machinery such as skid steer loaders and excavators, the
building area will be sand filled to the desired elevation as stipulated in the contract
document.
(v) Casting of foundation slab: The foundation strip will be reinforced with size 5/8”
steel and casted to a thickness of 12” with 19mm sizes of aggregates.
(vi) Construction of skeletal structure by jib cranes: The entire skeletal structure of the
three storey building will rest directly above the foundation strip. It will be
established by the use of jib crane and will generally be structural steel. Construction

will commence from the base of the structure right up to the roof and will have
specifications as shown in summary above.
• The base will have 16 columns of lengths 3.6m.
(vii) Exterior walling: Exterior walls will be established, as shown in the drawing, around
the entire skeletal structure by the use of construction lay blocks and curtain walls.
These blocks will be poured monolithically with mortar and will be reinforced with
additional ½” high speed steel. Lastly, the walls will then be brought to a smooth
surface by plastering with concrete mortar.
(viii) Interior walling: Interior walls will be established, as shown in the drawing, by
partitioning and will follow the same procedure as for exterior walls.
(ix) Casting of roof slab: The roof slab will be reinforced with size 12mm dia. steel and
casted to a thickness of 250 mm with 19mm sizes of aggregates.
(x) Finishing: All finishes such as doors, windows, etc. will be applied to the structure to
give its final appearance.
Contingencies
Excavation during construction and stockpiling will be done from a suitable location. The entire
area will be declared a danger zone and will be protected by means of warning tapes, signs and
barriers. These mechanisms will be installed at suitable locations to give adequate warning to the
public and to avoid them from coming into contact with the works, thus, minimizing the
occurrence of accidents.

Quality Control
The intention is to meet and exceed the client’s expectations through rigid observance to the
specifications and client involvement during all stages of construction. The AASHTO and
ASTM methods for compaction and soil testing will be utilised before and after construction to
ensure that the soil was unaffected by any possible contamination. Piles will be fully seasoned
before driving and reinforcements will be electroplated to avoid corrosion.
In addition, during construction, a site engineer will be placed at the location to ensure that all
technical specifications are adhered to and to ensure that the structure is constructed in
accordance with the details outlined in the drawing.
Occupational Health and Safety
The intension is to implement occupational health and safety (OH&S) plans to meet the
acceptable standards in the construction industry. Surplus to requirements, attention will be given
to the safe care and use of oils, fuel, lubricants and bituminous products in keeping with strict
environmental guidelines set out by the EPA of Guyana.
Additionally, workers will be properly briefed and supervised of the use and care of construction
equipment.

In order to maintain good contractor/client relationship, consistent monitoring of the behavioral
approach of staff and tradesmen, with respect to workmanship and continual improvement, will
be ensured at all times.
In keeping with GCC Clauses (section vii: FIDIC Standard bidding document © 2005), it will be
ensured that potential traffic hazards are avoided as much as possible. At the end of the works it
will be made certain that the site’s surroundings are brought back to its original position as much
as possible.
DAY WORKS SCHEDULE
General
Work will not be executed on a daily basis without following written instruction by the Engineer.
Bidders will enter basic rates for day work items in the Schedules. These rates will apply to any
quantity of day work ordered by the Engineer. Nominal quantities have been indicated against
each item of day work, and the extended total for day work will be carried forward as a
Provisional Sum to the Summary Total Bid Amount. The rates of labour, materials and
equipment will be in Guyana dollars only.
Labour
In calculating payments due to the Contractor for the execution of day works, the hours for
labour will be reckoned from the time of arrival of the labour at the job site to execute the
particular item of day work to the time of departure from the job site, but excluding meal breaks
and rest periods. Only the time of classes of labour directly doing work ordered by the Engineer
and are competent to perform such work shall be measured. The time of gangers (charge hands)
actually doing work with the gangs will also be measured but not the time of foremen or other
supervisory personnel.
The Contractor shall be entitled to payment in respect of the total time that labour is employed
on day work, calculated on the basis of the rates for that class of labour entered in the "
SCHEDULE OF DAYWORK RATES: 1. LABOUR". The rates for labour shall be deemed to
cover all costs to the Contractor including (but not limited to) the amount of wages paid to such
labour, transportation time, overtime, subsistence allowances, and any sums paid to or on behalf

PROJECT INFORMATION
The specification for the design of a steel building was given by Mr. Marlon Daniels (Lecturer
for CIV 428).
Considerations and Assumptions:
The design was done using BS5950 -1: 2000 and Code of Practices for the Structural use of
Steel. The structural analysis of the building was done manually using formulas and conditions
proved in the BS 5950-1:2000.
The load G
k
were obtained from the weights of the actual construction materials used, while the
loading for the roof and all other floors were taken from British Standard 6399, Part 1-1996. Live
loads for floors were taken from British Standard 6399, Part 1-1996, and other consideration
taken by the design team. The effect of wind load was taken into considered because:
I. The building can be considered as a high rise structure.
II. The building might not be located amongst other buildings.
III. The initial loading analysis was calculated and then inputted into BS 5950 formulas to
generate the Moments and Shear Forces.

BEAM-TO-COLUMN CONNECTION USING WEB CLEATS
Design of double angle web cleat beam-to-column connection detail shown
below is suitable to resist the design shear force, V, of 301.13 kN. Assume the
steel is grade S275 and the bolts are M16 grade 8.8 in 2 mm clearance holes.
CHECK FASTENER SPACING AND EDGE/END DISTANCES
Diameter of bolt, db = 16 mm
Diameter of bolt hole, Dh = 18mm
Pitch of bolt, p = 140 mm and 60 mm
Edge distance, e1 = 40 mm
End distance, e2 = 60 mm and 50 mm
Thickness of angle cleat, tp = 10 mm
The following conditions need to be met:
Pitch ≥ 2.5db = 2.5 × 16 = 32 < 140 and 60 OK
Pitch ≤ 14tp = 14 × 10 = 140 ≤ 140 and 60 OK

(For grade S275 steel with t

BEAM-TO-COLUMN CONNECTION USING WEB CLEATS
Design of double angle web cleat beam-to-column connection detail shown
below is suitable to resist the design shear force, V, of 301.13 kN. Assume the
steel is grade S275 and the bolts are M16 grade 8.8 in 2 mm clearance holes.
CHECK FASTENER SPACING AND EDGE/END DISTANCES
Diameter of bolt, db = 16 mm
Diameter of bolt hole, Dh = 18mm
Pitch of bolt, p = 140 mm and 60 mm
Edge distance, e1 = 40 mm
End distance, e2 = 60 mm and 50 mm
Thickness of angle cleat, tp = 10 mm
The following conditions need to be met:
Pitch ≥ 2.5db = 2.5 × 16 = 32 < 140 and 60 OK
Pitch ≤ 14tp = 14 × 10 = 140 ≤ 140 and 60 OK
Edge distance e
1
≥ 1.4Dh = 1.4 × 18= 25.2 < 40 OK
End distance e
2
≥ 1.4Dh = 1.4 × 18 = 25.2 < 60 and 50 OK
e
1
and e
2
≤ 11tpε = 11 × 10 × 1 = 110 < 40, 50 and 60 OK
(For grade S275 steel with t
p
= 10 mm, py = 275 N/mm
2
, ε = 1.) Hence all
fastener spacing and edge/end distances to fasteners are satisfactory.

Since thickness of angle cleat (= 10 mm) < thickness of column flange (= 23.8

Therefore bolts are adequate in bearing.

Shear
6 No., M16 grade 8.8 bolts; from above, A

and ps = 375 N/mm

Since bolts are in double shear, shear capacity of each bolt is
2P
s

Loads applied to the bolt group are vertical shear, V = 303.13 kN and

Load on outermost bolt due to shear, F

Since the bolts are subject to combined shear and tension, the bolts should be
checked for shear, tension and combined shear and tension separately.

Shear force/bolt, Fs = P/N = 313.59/10 = 31.36 kN
Shear capacity of bolt, Ps, is
Psd = 2Ps = ps As = 2 x 375 x 157 = 117.8 × 10

BEAM-TO-COLUMN CONNECTION USING WEB CLEATS
Design of double angle web cleat beam-to-column connection detail shown
below is suitable to resist the design shear force, V, of 301.13 kN. Assume the
steel is grade S275 and the bolts are M16 grade 8.8 in 2 mm clearance holes.
CHECK FASTENER SPACING AND EDGE/END DISTANCES
Diameter of bolt, db = 16 mm
Diameter of bolt hole, Dh = 18mm
Pitch of bolt, p = 140 mm and 60 mm
Edge distance, e1 = 40 mm
End distance, e2 = 60 mm and 50 mm
Thickness of angle cleat, tp = 10 mm
The following conditions need to be met:
Pitch ≥ 2.5db = 2.5 × 16 = 32 < 140 and 60 OK
Pitch ≤ 14tp = 14 × 10 = 140 ≤ 140 and 60 OK
Edge distance e

(For grade S275 steel with t

, ε = 1.) Hence all
fastener spacing and edge/end distances to fasteners are satisfactory.

DISCUSSIONS
The design of a structure may be judged by whether it fulfills the required function safely, can be
built with economy and can maintain an acceptable appearance for its specified lifetime. As a
result, it means that the design of structural steelwork is assessed based on the criteria of safety,
economy and appearance.
Safety is assessed by considering the strength of the structure relative to the loads which it is
expected to carry. In practice this assessment is applied to each structural element in turn, but
these individual element checks are not sufficient without considering the overall safety of the
framework. The strength of the structural element must always exceed the effects of the loads by
a margin which is known as the factor of safety. In general sense assessment of the structure
includes all the criteria by which its performance should be judged, e.g. strength, deflection,
vibration, bending, etc. In this project, the design was done in accordance with B.S. 5950. As a
result of the dead and imposed loads of the members, analyses using the size of the various
members were possible and were found to be adequate; since all the necessary checks were
satisfied: bending, compressions, deflection, shear and lateral torsional buckling.
Whilst in practice economy of the design is of great importance to the owner of the finished
structure, students were not required to make an economic assessment. However, two basic
matters should be taken into account. Firstly, the finished design should match, without
excessively exceeding, as many of the design criteria as possible. Clearly the provision of excess
strength in a structural element without reason will not be seen as economic. Secondly, in
structural steelwork only part of the cost is contained in the rolled steel sections, and a large part
of the cost results from fabrication and erection processes. Consequently, economic design does
not result from finding the smallest structural size and weight without considering the difficulties
of fabrication. In many cases repetition of a member size and standardization of components can
lead to substantial overall savings.
The appearance of the finished structure is generally of great importance due to the very size and
impact of frames in structural steel. The achievement of an element design is desirable not only
in complete structures but in small design details. It is here that students should try to achieve
elegant, neat and balanced solutions to problems. In many cases, these may be found to be the
most economically sound solutions.

CONCLUSIONS
Based on the objective of this project it can be stated that first order assessment on the variability
of the loading conditions for various steel components are possible. The results obtained enabled
the establishment of the design of the various members of the proposed structure being designed
using the BS 5950 part 1-2000, BS 6399 Part 2, etc. Further, it was found that the building
members that were designed using the relevant codes were adequate in passing the required tests
as outlined in BS 5950 and the elements of design for steel members.
Additionally, it can be stated that a simple basis for design of steel structures is to consider a
structural framework composed of a number of elements connected together. Loads are sustained
by the element, and its reactions transferred to other elements via the connections. In this simple
concept for design, it is essential that overall action of the framework is considered.

to analyse the soil profile. (ii) (iii) surface smooth enough to execute works. Excavation: Prior to pile driving, the selected area will be excavated and levelled to a Pile driving and capping: Piles will be driven, in accordance with the results obtained from the in situ test, to an approximate depth of 19m avoiding as much vibration as possible. The type of mechanism to be utilised for driving is the jack hammer. Further these piles will be driven in groups, with the total number of piles being 300 (nr). The piles will be designed to resist uplift and to support the full weight of the structure above. After driving, the piles will be capped with slabs of thickness 450mm.

In this project. in structural steelwork only part of the cost is contained in the rolled steel sections. 64 | P a g e of fabrication. the design was done in accordance with B. and a large part of the cost results from fabrication and erection processes. In practice this assessment is applied to each structural element in turn. without excessively exceeding. In general sense assessment of the structure includes all the criteria by which its performance should be judged. analyses using the size of the various members were possible and were found to be adequate. Safety is assessed by considering the strength of the structure relative to the loads which it is expected to carry. It is here that students should try to achieve elegant. 5950. strength. In many cases. e. Firstly. The strength of the structural element must always exceed the effects of the loads by a margin which is known as the factor of safety. As a result of the dead and imposed loads of the members. vibration. neat and balanced solutions to problems.g. can be built with economy and can maintain an acceptable appearance for its specified lifetime. it means that the design of structural steelwork is assessed based on the criteria of safety. as many of the design criteria as possible. the finished design should match. economic design does not result from finding the smallest structural size and weight without considering the difficulties lead to substantial overall savings. Secondly. shear and lateral torsional buckling. deflection. these may be found to be the most economically sound solutions. The appearance of the finished structure is generally of great importance due to the very size and impact of frames in structural steel. but these individual element checks are not sufficient without considering the overall safety of the framework. students were not required to make an economic assessment. compressions.

Consequently. 2011 DISCUSSIONS The design of a structure may be judged by whether it fulfills the required function safely. Clearly the provision of excess strength in a structural element without reason will not be seen as economic.

Additionally. it is essential that overall action of the framework is considered. The results obtained enabled the establishment of the design of the various members of the proposed structure being designed using the BS 5950 part 1-2000. it was found that the building members that were designed using the relevant codes were adequate in passing the required tests as outlined in BS 5950 and the elements of design for steel members. 2011 CONCLUSIONS Based on the objective of this project it can be stated that first order assessment on the variability of the loading conditions for various steel components are possible.
