Steel first floor joists Per SF of area covered. Includes joists and rim joists, typical screws, stiffeners, splices, blocking and strapping. Add the cost of support beams, bridging, trimmer joists and sheathing. See the beam, bridging, trimmer joist and sheathing costs below. Deduct for openings over 25 SF. Figures in parentheses show weight of steel per square foot of floor. Assumes minimal waste.
