SPS is an alternative to reinforced concrete for a building’s floors and core.

  • SPS Floors are 70% lighter, permitting lighter frames and foundations

  • SPS provides diaphragm action. SPS floors provide comparable structural capacity and stiffness to concrete floors.

  • SPS floors and cores are designed to act compositely with steel frames. The all steel bolted construction with SPS floors and cores provides excellent resistance to seismic loads.

  • SPS panels are prefabricated, highly accurate allowing faster and safer building construction

  • Thinner material can allow additional floors to be built and increase net lettable area per floor

SPS Floors

  • Crew Access Tower, Cape Canaveral, US

  • 58 Victoria Embankment, London, UK

  • Birmingham New Street Station, North Access Ramp, UK

  • Daytona Hospitality Suite Walkway, US

  • Innovation Centre for Engineering, University of Alberta, Canada

  • North Terminal Interchange Extension, London Gatwick, UK

SPS shear cores provide two key benefits:

  • Eliminate concrete above ground level

  • Thinner walls increase net lettable area
