We just finished a project for a new customer out of Texas. Albina Co., Inc. provided 40,000# of bent steel for the Fort Worth Multi-Purpose Arena project in Fort Worth, Texas which broke ground on April 18th. Albina provided 28 pieces of spiral bent Tube Steel 8″ X 4″ X .500″ WALL A500 GR B the easy way to AESS (Architecturally Exposed Structural Steel) standards. The tightest section was bent to a 17 foot radius. The Fort Worth Multipurpose Arena will be a 14,000-seat, multipurpose venue owned by the City of Fort Worth. The state-of-the-art arena, scheduled to open in November 2019, will host concerts, sporting events and family entertainment, and will be the new home to Fort Worth Stock Show Rodeo performances.
Albina Co., Inc. recently bent 60,000# of Tube Steel 18″ X 6″ X .625″ WALL A500 GR B for the Young Living Global Headquarters in Lehi, Utah. Young Living Global is a world leader in producing essential oils and broke ground in May 2017 for its 263,000 square-foot, world-class building which was designed to complement Young Living’s philosophy of living harmoniously with nature. They focused on green initiatives in both the indoor and outdoor design.
“The care and detail that went into designing our headquarters was a collaborative effort to capture our Founder and Chairman of the Board D. Gary Young’s vision for an architectural representation of the spirit of wellness and abundance that Young Living embodies,” said Jared Turner, Young Living Chief Operating Officer. “I am certain this campus will be one-of-a-kind, inside and out; and we look forward to sharing it with our local community and all who wish to visit.”
We bent a total of 53 pieces and all of them were bent the easy way or spiral bent the easy way to as tight as a 43 foot radius. All of the steel material was bent to Architecturally Exposed Structural Steel standards.
Does traffic frustrate you? Are you tired of facing poor road conditions and various road hazards when driving?
Albina is teaming up where ever we can with contractors to provide bent steel for new road construction. New roads in high traffic areas will help alleviate traffic congestion and will provide commuters with better roads and driving conditions.
One such area in Oregon that has historically had very high congestion is the highway connecting the cities of Newberg and Dundee. Certain times of the day this highway sits at a standstill. Fortunately, there is a new Bypass road being built that will help with the heavy traffic congestion.
Albina will be providing the bent steel for the new Newberg Dundee Bypass. Materials include:
TS 10″ X 4″ X .375″ WALL A500 GR B
TS 12″ X 8″ X .375″ WALL A500 GR B
Materials are bent the Hard way to various configurations. All materials are bent to AESS (architecturally exposed structural steel) standards. For more information on the project you can read a recent update posted on Oregon.gov.
Albina recently completed bending 16″ OD X .625″ WALL A500 GR B material for a new bridge at the San Diego Zoo. A total of 24 lens x 48 feet weighing 118,350 pounds were required for this job. Albina used a combination of induction bending and cold increment bending to complete this project to meet AESS standards. Radii on the projected ranged from a 20 foot center-line-radius to a 350 foot center-line-radius. We are not a stranger to bending bridges for California Zoos! See below for a few examples of curved steel bridges and custom signage that we completed for the Happy Hallow Zoo in San Jose.
