          PART 3EXECUTION
 
          3.1EXAMINATION
 
          A.Do not begin installation until substrates have been properly prepared.
 
          B.If substrate preparation is the responsibility of another installer, notify Architect of unsatisfactory preparation before proceeding.
 
          C.Verify that all rough-in utilities are located properly.
 
          3.2PREPARATION
 
          A.Clean surfaces thoroughly prior to installation.
 
          B.Prepare attachment surfaces so they are plumb, level and in proper alignment for accepting the cold formed framing members. Prepare surfaces using the methods recommended by the manufacturer for achieving the best result for the substrate under the project conditions.
 
          3.3FABRICATION
 
          A.Prior to fabrication of framing, submit shop drawings to the architect or engineer to obtain approval.
 
          B.Framing components may be preassembled into panels prior to erecting. Prefabricate panels so they are square, with components attached in a manner which prevents racking and minimizes distortion during lifting and transport.
 
          C.Fabrication Instructions:
          1.Cut all framing components square for attachment to perpendicular members or as required for an angular fit against abutting members.
          2.Plumb, align and securely attach studs to flanges of both upper and lower runners, except that in the case of interior, non-load bearing walls where studs need not be attached to upper or lower runners.
          3.In all doubled jamb studs and doubled headers not accessible to insulation contractors, provide insulation equal to that specified elsewhere.
          4.Splices in members other than top and bottom runner track are not permitted.
          5.Provide temporary bracing where required, until erection is complete.
          6.Handling and lifting of pre-fabricated panels shall be done in a manner so as not to cause distortion in any manner.
 
          3.4ERECTION - NON-LOAD-BEARING WALL APPLICATIONS
 
          A.Install cold-formed framing in accordance with ASTM C 754
 
          B.Install in accordance with manufacturer's instructions.
 
          C.Framing Installation:
          1.Install framing components plumb, level and square, in strict accordance with approved drawings
          2.Align floor and ceiling tracks; locate to layout and securely anchor to the supporting structure.
          3.Align and plumb studs, and securely attach both upper and lower track legs to the flanges of the stud with approved fastener
          4.Install jack studs or cripples below window sills, above door and window headers and elsewhere as required to provide lateral support.
          5.Provide lateral bracing by use of wall sheathing and/or cold rolled channel or horizontal strapping. Bracing shall conform to Section D3 of AISI-NASPEC.
          6.Provisions for vertical movement of supporting structure must be made at all locations noted on the Contract Documents and/or where indicated in the engineered drawings.
          7.Handling and lifting of pre-fabricated panels shall be done in a manner so as not to cause distortion in any manner.
 
          3.5INSTALLATION - SHAFTWALL FRAMING; RUNNERS, STUDS AND LINER BOARDS
 
          A.C-T Shaft Wall Installation:
          1.Lay out Shaft Wall as indicated on construction drawings.
          2.Securely Anchor Tabbed J-Track at floor and overhead with the longer leg facing the shaft side with an approved fastener.
          3.Apply non-hardening, flexible sealant in a continuous application at the perimeter.
          4.Space C-T Studs at 24 inches O.C. Plan the spacing at ends of Shaft Wall construction so end studs are minimum 12 inches from the ends.
          5.Install the first Liner Board panel. The panel length shall be 3/4 inch less than the total height of the framed section. Plumb the panel against the web of the Tabbed Track and bend out tabs in Tabbed J-Track to secure the panel in place.
          6.Cut C-T Studs 1/2" less than overall Wall Height.
          7.Insert C-T Stud into the top and bottom Tabbed Track and fit tightly over the previously installed 1 inch panel. Allow equal clearance between track and stud at top and bottom J-Track.
          8.Install the following 1 inch Liner Board panel inside the Tabbed J-Track and within the tabs of the CT Studs.
          9.Install the remaining C-T studs and Liner Board panels in the same manner previously described above until the wall section is complete.
          10.Install the final panel section at 12 inches O.C. utilizing the tabs of the Tabbed J- Track to secure the panel.
          11.Where wall heights exceed the standard or available length of the Shaftwall Liner Board panels, the liner panels can be cut and stacked with joints occurring within the top or bottom third points of the wall height. Note: The shorter panels shall be minimum 24 inches long and of sufficient length to engage 2 studs. Note: Joints of adjacent panels should be staggered to avoid continuous horizontal joint,
          12.For doors, ducts or other large penetrations or openings, install Jamb Strut as perimeter framing. Use 20-gauge track with a 3 inch back leg for elevator doors and block cavity. Install 12 inch wide gypsum filler strips for doors exceeding 7 foot height..
 
          3.6INSTALLATION - JOISTS
 
          A.General Joist System Requirements
          1.Install cold-formed framing in accordance with ASTM C 1007
          2.Weld in compliance with AWS D.1.3
          3.Install in compliance with applicable sections of AISI Standard for Cold-Formed Steel Framing General Provisions
 
          B.Joist Installation:
          1.Align joist bearing at foundation walls by means of shims and/or non-setting grout.
          2.Locate joists or a load distribution member directly over bearing studs at the top of bearing walls.
          3.Provide web stiffeners at reaction points and/or points of concentrated loads or where indicated on the drawings
          4.Install joist bridging where indicated on the drawings.
          5.Install additional joists under parallel partitions when the partition length exceeds one-half the joist span, also around all floor and roof openings, which interrupt one or more spanning members unless otherwise noted.
          6.Install end blocking where joist ends are not otherwise restrained from rotation.
