Structural Steel Bending for the Oregon State University Student Experience Center

Albina is providing 62,000# of  79′ lengths of TS 20″ x 12″ x .500″ wall A500 GR the Hard-way to a 101′-8″ radius for a spiral staircase at the Student Experience Center at Oregon State University in Corvallis, OR.  Albina is also providing 69 pieces of TS 6″ x 3″ x .313″ wall A500 GR measuring 66′ long for the project as well.  Installation pictures coming soon!

  1. i am civil engineering student from university of florence in italy.
    In my course “Steel Structure” our professor asks us to calculate an existing steel structure.
    Searching on google image i was acctracted by this steel structure .
    my request if can i have some additional information about this structure. Like:
    -Foundation of the structure
    -Or samthing else that can be useful for my project
    Thank you very much

    1. Unfortunately, I can not share the actual drawings with you as those are the legal property of my customer. The bending portion of this project required very large HSS rectangular tubing to be bent consistently from piece to piece with little to no deformation. Albina bent 8 lengths of TS 20” x 12” x .500” wall A500 Gr. B, all over 70 ft long. Albina also bent 44 lengths x 60 ft and 23 lengths x 25 ft of TS 6” x 3” x .313” wall A500 Gr. B, this material was “double bent” the easy-way and the hard-way. Fought & Co., a structural steel fabrication shop located in Tigard Oregon, teamed up with Albina to successfully produce the required canopy. Albina was tasked with the steel bending while Fought was tasked with the fabrication.
      Albina recently published an article in Metal Architectural in the October 2015 issue highlighting the Student Experience Center Curved Steel Canopy project.
