Structural Steel Erecting in Sacramento

Some of you may guess the small building we are working on.  I’ll give you a hint – you can see the color of the joist used for this auto parts store.

Dan and Karl shook the deck out and tacked down in one day.

We came back about 1-1/2 months after we finished the deck to install these two awnings.

Cell Tower Modification in Modesto

On this cell tower we added 12 gussets to the base plate of the tower and reinforced the port holes.

This was the easy side to get to

The gussets are about 6″ wide at the base and approximately 14″ tall.

I had to make like a mole to get in this hole

Sometimes half the battle is getting to where you need to be and then to see the joint that needs to be welded.

 

Structural Fabrication 1st Quarter 2012

Structural Fabrication for the Department of Water and Fish and Game

The structure in the background of this picture is a completed frame with catwalk.

These frames hold culverts in the Delta near Stockton.  We built 4 total frames.

The dimensions are 5 feet tall, 11 feet wide, 60 feet long, and weighed approx. 16,000 lbs.

The frames where made mostly using 4″x8″x1/4″ rectangular tubing and 4″x6″x1/4″ rectangular tubing.

The majority of the project was welded using NR232.  This welding wire is approved for all structural applications.
