The ten-storey McConnell Building is a masterpiece
in innovative structural design. Pall Friction Dampers are installed
at the junction of steel cross bracing in rigid concrete frames. The
use of steel bracing eliminated the need of expensive concrete shearwalls
and the introduction of supplemental damping provided by friction dampers
eliminated the need of dependence on ductility of structural members.
