1 Precision HSS Connection System For Modular Buildings by Entire contents protected by Copyright. US and International Patents Pending

2 Stacked and Bundled Vectorbloc Systems Explained! Entire contents copyright February 2015 Vectorbloc and related systems US, Canada and WIPO Patent pending

3 Because loads in a building vary, Vectorblocs are designed to support a wide range of column configurations This means that the minimum of steel and labour can be used to build a member which suits specific load conditions Each bolt in the standard connector series has a clamping strength of 60kips, so a group of 8 delivers over 400 kips, adequate for buildings well over 30 stories

4 Vectorbloc offers two ways to build modules, which we call Stacked and Bundled. The stacked system scales with load using modules with progressively larger HSS, while the bundled system adds horizontal tiers of HSS in ever wider assemblies. These wide assemblies also function as shear walls. Top: Stacked Bottom: Bundled Vector Praxis production office

5 The two systems are interchangeable, so designers can select the connection and member configuration that best suits each project, or even each part of a project.

6 Stacked Typical details

7 Typical transition block 4 x 4 to 6 x 6

8 The structural bundling of columns is similar to the story of the boy who was challenged to break a bundle of sticks and found it impossible because a group of members acting together are stronger than the sum of the parts..

9 Robust groupings can be created using one size of HSS welded corner to corner and joined in groups with flat-bar ears.

10 Bundled Typical details

11 Bundled Typical details

12 A Vectorbloc building designer using FEA software selects the column configuration that best suits the loading on each module. Section transitions

13 By joining bundled columns in adjacent modules, configurations ranging from a 24 lbs / foot grouping of 4 x 4 HSS, to massive built-up columns weighing over 400 lbs per foot, can all fit in a 10-1/2 wall

14 Vectorbloc Concept Building February 2015 Vectorbloc and related systems US, Canada and WIPO Patent pending

15 By examining a Vectorbloc-based concept building we can better understand the practical application of the Vectorbloc structural system

16 Vectorbloc concept building: Renders

17 Apartment buildings and condominiums are highly optimized and every square foot is utilized. Vectorbloc s bundled column reduces lost GFA by packing load-bearing structures in to the wall cavities, eliminating inconvenient bumpouts Plan of typical floor

18 Lateral brace frames (blue) are concentrated in the party walls, while the longitudinal system (pink) is loaded in to areas where the diagonal bracing does not obstruct openings Brace locations

19 Minimizing module size variants is not essential, but it is desirable Module size matrix

20 Vectorbloc sectional frame elevations showing conventionallyconstructed parking structure, podium and transfer beams

21 Vectorbloc Frame

22 Typical twomodule grouping

23 Typical two module grouping with finishes and furnishings

24 Typical single module frame construction

25 The brace frame is created when modules are interconnected to unite the integral diagonal bracing in the modules. Bracing can be integrated in locations such as the party walls, elevator shafts and stairwells.

26 Lateral Frame

27 Deep spandrel beams can be integrated in to the framing if required to eliminate diagonal bracing which obstructs openings Frame Details

28 The longitudinal brace frame is created on the upper floors by interconnecting modules to combine the moment action of the module frames. On lower floors, bracing is added to the shaft, stairwell and hallway modules. Longitudinal Frame

29 Vectorbloc modules incorporate the ideal vertical load bearing capacity at each level in the building, they provide a moment connection and they are interconnected connected horizontally. As a result, a separate brace frame or brace tower can be eliminated, saving valuable space and reducing construction complexity.
