    Abstract. The article considers the constructions of a six-storey residential building, where the external and internal bearing walls, floors and covering are made of light steel thin-walled structures made of galvanized sheet and foam concrete, enclosed in a permanent formwork made of slab material. Cold-bent galvanized profiles in the building perform load-bearing functions, ensuring its strength, rigidity, and seismic resistance. Foam concrete provides thermal protection of the building, inter-apartment sound insulation, fire resistance of structures, anti-corrosion resistance, increases the load-bearing capacity of the frame (increases the stability of the walls and shelves of channels). The speed of construction, environmental friendliness and economic advantages of buildings with frames made of galvanized profiles contribute to an increasing growth of their popularity. However, the lack of knowledge of these structures in our country and the absence of detailed design standards hinder their development and require further extensive testing, as well as clarification of the regulatory framework for their calculation and design.
    Key words: residential buildings of medium height, frame of light steel thin-walled structures, cold-bent galvanized profiles, foam concrete, effect of reinforcement of steel frame with foam concrete.
