Fireground strategies: The "new millennium" multiple dwelling
The characteristic features of the latest type of multiple dwellings are presented. The new buildings make use of all construction types in the same building structure, from large steel members of fire-resistive construction that make up the building's skeleton to the unprotected lightweight steel of noncombustible construction. The new construction provides off-the-street parking for all residents, solving the parking problem. The roof construction can be of anything from concrete plank to corrugated steel supported lightweight steel trusses, although, majority of structures use a plywood roof deck supported by laminated wooden I-beams.
