box frame construction type
Explanation:
http://www.britannica.com/EBchecked/topic/76314/box-frame-co...

box frame construction
architecture
also called cellular framing , or cross-wall construction Main
method of building with concrete in which individual cells, or rooms, are set horizontally and vertically together to create an overall structural frame. Because the main weight of the building is carried through the cross walls, they must be sufficiently thick to carry their own weight as well as loads from above, and so the potential height of a structure built in this manner is limited. The most common application is in low apartment flats and similar buildings having walls and floors formed by reinforced concrete slabs
