strength-conformant


Explanation:
One of those embellishing teasers which don't really add to the clarity of the text. It really says the walls are built sturdy enough to bear the weight of the steel superstructure, a redundancy because no architect would design them not to be weightbearing. I thinh the answer does tyhe text justice, but could be skipped just as well.
