Dig into the numbers

A third party, unbiased study shows how USG Structural Panels stack up against poured concrete. When all things are equal, it’s not even close.

Structural Panels at a Glance

USG Structural Panels are high-strength, reinforced concrete panels for use in noncombustible construction. They’re lightweight, at just 5 PSF, and a single layer installation mechanically fastened to the truss or joist functions as the complete subfloor or roof deck. So, they’re engineered to save time, money and hassle.

The Fine Print

Costing Study Disclaimer

  • The building selected for the costing study was a six-story hospitality structure located in the middle of the United States.

  • Two teams of structural professional engineers were enlisted to design the structures of two buildings.

  • The first building was designed using cold-formed steel (CFS); that included loadbearing CFS walls and CFS floor joists and the USG Structural Panel Concrete Subfloor and CFS shear walls throughout the building.

  • The second structure used poured concrete and pan decking supported by joists, and masonry shear walls.

  • The structural design parameters placed the building in the mid-west (St. Louis area) and did not account for any special design conditions due to high winds or high seismic. The location was selected to produce an average building structure for the United States.

  • Costing of the two structural buildings was performed by a professional estimator, knowledgeable in the construction industry. Average database values were used for the construction industry, as would be used for producing an estimate for a project bid.

  • Results of the structural design and of the building costings are likely to vary when performed by different structural engineers and different estimators.
