This paper describes the investigation of a mill building bent of truss and column design, a redesign using a rigid-frame, and an estimated cost of each design. For sake of brevity the overall design of the building (sway bracing, lateral bracing, purlins, girts, roofing, siding, and bay spacing) was assumed to be the same for both designs. It is possible that this assumption cannot be made and the estimates of cost, therefore, are in error. In actual practice the complete redesign of the building should be considered.
