Midwest Steel is known for making challenging structural steel projects look easy.

This project required a complex super truss to be installed using a methodical and careful process. We erected the lower half of the super truss in two separate sections as complete assemblies and then stick built the upper section in place. This had to be managed very carefully as as the roof trusses and floor trusses were tied in using a designated order of assembly. The expertise and dedication of our project manager, superintendent and ironworkers made it all come together smoothly and safely.

This project also included the erection of an operable wall support system so that the building could be divided for flexible use of the space as facility schedule demands.

Midwest Steel was proud to work with the project's Construction Manager/General Contractor Denmark Construction as well as the rest of the construction team on this important and highly successful project.
