When soil conditions are unstable and the goal is to minimize stress on the building, avoid structural systems with rigid connections such as those found in welded steel framing systems, masonry systems and site-cast systems. Consider instead a structural system with relatively flexible connections. This includes any wood framing system, steel framing with sheer connections, and precast concrete systems.
