San Mateo County Office Building No. 3

Olson Steel topped out the last beam on the structural steel framing for the braced frame cores for the new, beautifully designed 5-story structural steel and cross-laminated timber (CLT) framed building structure that will be the future home of San Mateo County. Olson Steel detailed, fabricated, and erected nearly 1,100 tons of structural steel on this project, including CoreBrace Buckling Restrained Braces (BRBs). This project included lateral steel framing that consisted of buckle restrained brace frames combined with Glulam columns, beams and CLT panels. Olson Steel is moving towards providing a single source procurement process (single contract) for Structural Steel and Mass Timber Hybrid Structures in CA.
