Wood blocking installation

Wood blocking was installed in door openings throughout the building. 2x4s are placed in the door jam openings at locations where there will be wood doors. The door frames and casings cannot be nailed into the metal studs, so 2x4s are screwed into the metal studs to create a strong nailing surface for the finished door frame and casings.

There will be approximately 110 wood doors throughout the building.

Steel fire doors will be located in stair wells, exits to the parking deck and in the lobby area. The communicating stair from the first to the second floor will have a glass door, as well the conference room on the third floor and the front entrance doors.
