Albina recently rolled various sizes of tube steel and angle for Saint Marks Coptic Orthodox Church in Centennial, Colorado. Materials included: 4 Pieces of Tube Steel 6″ X 6″ X .250″ WALL A500 GR B rolled to a 14 ft radius, 8 pieces of Tube Steel 4″ X 4″ X .250″ WALL A500 GR B rolled to a 4 ft radius, 1 piece 4″ X 4″ X 3/8″ ANGLE A36 leg in rolled to a 13 ft radius, and 4 pieces 3″ X 3″ X ¼” ANGLE A36 leg out rolled to a 15 ft radius. Albina rolled all of the material, fabrication was done by our customer.
Thanks to Viva Railings LLC (Photo credit & Glass/Railing Fabricator) we have received some final installation pictures of the circular staircase at the “Trinity Complex”, home to American Airlines Headquarters in Fort Worth, Texas. We spiral bent Tube Steel 16″ X 16″ X .625″ WALL A500 GR B bent down to a an 18 foot radius, using our induction heating process to create the spiral stringers for the staircase. In addition to the 16″ square, we produced another set of spiral stringers consisting of Tube Steel 14″ x 6″ x .625″ wall REALLY tight, exposed and bent to a 5′-6″ radius on a 45° pitch. These are the type of bends that ONLY Albina can do! The 1.7 million-square-foot complex, dubbed the “Trinity complex,” consists of four seven-story buildings. It cost nearly $300 million to build and houses over 6,500 employees. There were 10 tower cranes on the project and more than 1,000 construction workers on-site during the peak of the project.
Thank you to Avant Arc Quality Fabrication & Design, and Ninkasi Brewing Co., for giving Albina the opportunity to bend some cool parts for the Ninkasi Bar in Eugene, Oregon. Albina bent:
2″ OD X .120″ WALL HREW- 10 lengths x 20 ft to net 50 bent pieces- various degree bends all on a 12” radius.
2″ OD X .120″ WALL HREW- 4 lengths x 20 ft to net 40 bent pieces- various degree bends all on a 4” radius.
4″ OD X .083″ WALL T304 S/S- 2 lengths x 20 ft to net 2 bent pieces x 90° on a 55” radius and 2 bent pieces x 90° on a 44” radius.
Albina recently completed 233 pieces of 4″ SCH40 A53B ERW bent in a Double 90° configuration on a 9″ centerline radius for bollards for the back area of the new SoFi Stadium-Home of the Los Angeles Rams and the Los Angeles Chargers (loading dock, VIP parking, etc.) The bollards will be used for protection of the main structural columns at the stadium.
Albina provided 109,000# of bent steel for the Eli Lilly San Diego Biotech Center in La Jolla, CA. Eli Lilly doubled the size of its research facility to 300,000 square feet during this project. Materials included: 8″ X 8″ X 5/8″ ANGLE A36- half of the parts rolled leg in and half of the parts rolled leg out. Tube Steel 8″ X 8″ X .500″ WALL A500 GR B 8 5/8″ OD X .625″ WALL A500B Wide Flange W16 X 57# A992- Split into WT8 and rolled some parts stem in and rolled some parts stem out. Wide Flange W24 X 103# A992- DOUBLE split to a finished height of 8¼” tall. Albina then rolled some parts stem in and other stem out.
Albina elliptically bent 50,000# of 14″ XH pipe, all material exposed, to extremely tight tolerances for the Wagon Creek Pedestrian Bridge in Mt. Shasta, California. The McConnell Foundation partnered with Siskiyou County by awarding a $600,000 grant for the Wagon Creek Bridge, and the bridge is considered the crown jewel of the Lake Siskiyou Trail.
The college tours continue and a few weekends ago, we had the pleasure of visiting Oregon State University in Corvallis, Oregon and seeing the curved steel canopy at the Student Experience Center.
The project was bent out of TS 20″ X 12″ X .500″ WALL. Bent the hard-way to the tightest radius of 101′-8″ inside. Always fun to see our handy work in person!
Albina recently bent some Tube Steel 6″ X 3″ X .500″ WALL A500 GR B as double 90° bends to a 17″ inside radius the hard way. These are difficult, tight bends for this material and the bends turned out perfectly! The bends will be used as vestibule frames for a lobby entry.
Check out the August Issue of Modern Steel for “What’s Cool In Steel” Albina was the bender/roller on two of the featured projects including the Basher Pedestrian Bridge at the San Diego Zoo (pages 23-26) and a Des Moines sculpture titled “A Monumental Journey” by artist Kerry James Marshall (pages 30-31). We are working on securing some final install pictures of each of these projects! Stay tuned!
