World of Speed, a nonprofit experiential motor sports exposition, purchased an 80,000 square foot building in Wilsonville, Oregon as the permanent home for an auto racing and performance car tourism destination and an auto industry educational program. A local contractor partnered with Albina Co., Inc. to have us bend the curved steel canopy on the top of the building. Materials consisted of 6″ SCH80 A53B rolled to a 48’ 4” center-line-radius. The customer will net 78’ 4” of bent material. All roll material is Architecturally Exposed Structural Steel.

The main canopy frame is assembled from Rolled / Bent Steel HSS members to AESS quality, and large diameter support columns with rolled / bent round tubing knee braces.
Albina and Cundiff Steel Fabricating & Erecting provided 36,000# of TS 16″ x 8″ x .375″ wall, TS 16″ x 8″ x .500″ wall, TS 10″ x 8″ x .250″ wall, and TS 16″ x 16″ x .375″ wall all AESS for a canopy at St. Jude’s Hospital. Cundiff Steel had the following comments about working with Albina: ” I want to thank you guys for sticking with us on this project. It drug on for a long time and Aaron rebid it several times as we went through headache after headache with the engineers. I feel he went above and beyond to help us get this project on track. It took a lot of correspondence back & forth to get everything dialed in & Aaron was very helpful through all of it. The lead time from finally getting you approved drawings to us receiving the material was much less than we expected. Also, I appreciate the time Aaron took when I visited to show me the material and provide a tour of the facility to see how it all works. Thanks again for the great service.” CHARLIE PISCOPO, V.P.
