If I go back to the floor plan here you'll notice that there's steel columns within the space for the gravity loads and we found that it was even economical to put columns at the perimeter of the space, to pick up those gravity loads but the panels take care of all of the lateral loads, the wind and whatnot. Each of these panels are three stories tall, so there's two panels stacked on top each other to give you the full six stories. And they are tied into the slab with rebar and HALFEN channels at each floor plate.
