Client:
Griffin Wheel
End Use:
Manufacturing Facility
Project Location:
Tulsa, OK
Square Footage:
300,000
Description:

As part of the design and construction team, Heavy Structures worked with BlueScope Construction and Eichleay Engineers to provide the structural steel and cladding systems for this 300,000 sq. ft. facility. The complex is split into five primary units, the largest of which is the Process Building. In addition to a 10,000 sq. ft. Office and a 19,000 sq. ft. Mold Repair building, which used traditional PEMB components, the complex includes a Scrap Handling building and a Melt Shop. Both the Scrap Handling building and the Melt Shop have high-usage cranes, a 20-ton Class F and an 80-ton Class E respectively. Design of the Melt Shop structure was also complicated by two 50'x50' furnace ducts that are mounted to the roof. The ducts, which are shaped like truncated pyramids, bring the overall height of the Melt Shop to 122' above grade. Heavy Structures also provided framing in the Melt Shop to accommodate two 12' diameter water-cooled ducts. Pre-engineered products used on the facilities included a standing steam metal roof and metal wall panels.
