    Abstract. Most of the residential development's buildings are buildings of up to 5 floors. These were often built using brickwork or prefabricated reinforced concrete. Recently, such buildings in our country are built of monolithic reinforced concrete. A promising area in construction is the erection of low-rise buildings with the use of steel structures. A distinctive feature of the steel frame is light weight, which reduces the load on the foundation and improves the performance of the frame under the action of seismic loads. It is noted that for the successful use of steel frames in buildings of mass development is necessary to develop standard designs. To ensure the complete assembly of the frame and exclude the wet processes, overlappings of typical buildings with a steel frame are rationally made of prefabricated reinforced concrete slabs. The features of work and design solutions of a standard steel frame of a five-storey building with an attic, developed at the Moscow State University of Civil Engineering, are considered. Typical steel frame structures have a simple design, maximum factory readiness and minimum weight. In addition, the use of such structures provides the reduction in the construction time and cost of the building.
    Key words: typical steel frame, 5-storey buildings, bearing cell of frame, columns, bracings, beams, bolted joints.
