Medium size building system selection

in the book The_Architects_Studio_Companion_Rules_of_Thumb_for, it was divided into large buildings and small buildings. Do we apply the large building criteria to medium size buildings?

Hi @xurubi ,

I would default to assuming ‘medium buildings’ would fall under the category of ‘large buildings’, but use your best judgement!

For reference, the AIA considers ‘small projects’ as those under 5000 square feet. Here’s a handy guide on what they consider a ‘small project’. http://wwwedu.artcenter.edu/mertzel/structint/Class_Files/contracts/aiab098207.pdf

Hope this helps!
