Steel Spiral Staircase for Goodwin Proctor Law Offices in California
Albina Co., Inc. recently completed bending spiral stringers of tube steel 10” x 6” x .625” wall all spiral bent the easy way down to a 7’ 4” inside radius. The stingers were bent for a Goodwin Proctor Law Office located in California. Albina Co., Inc. is the #1 steel stringer bender in the nation because Albina doesn’t split HSS prior to bending and then weld the sections back together to meet your needs, our HSS members are bent as HSS members. Albina doesn’t fill your HSS with other structural members. We are able to bend HSS members without adding extra material and weight and are still able to meet or exceed your quality requirements. Albina will bend your HSS stringers out of HSS material; we don’t make "built up stringers" out of plate. Steel Spiral Staircase Goodwin Proctor-1 Steel Spiral Staircase Goodwin Proctor-1
Steel Spiral Staircase at the John J. Hemmingson Center Gonzaga University
Albina Co., Inc. bent 40,000 lbs. of various sizes of tube steel for the spiral staircases at the John J. Hemmingson Center at Gonzaga University Spokane, WA. Materials consisted of Tube Steel 16" X 8" X .500" WALL A500 GR B rolled the easy way down to a 22 ft radius. These lengths of material were spiral bent using our induction heating process to AESS standards. We also bent Tube Steel 12" X 6" X .250" WALL A500 GR B rolled the hard way down to a 19 ft radius. The John J. Hemmingson Center was completed in 2015 and serves as a meeting place for students, staff and visitors the University. We visited the campus shortly after it opened and my son will tell you that the highlight for him was the cafe where you can make your own milkshakes! He was sold from then on out and hopes to attend Gonzago University himself one day!

Curved Steel Spiral Staircase at the Capitol Visitors Center in Washington, D.C.
On a recent trip to Washington DC, we had the pleasure of touring the Capitol Building and we were able to capture some pictures of The Capital Visitors Center spiral staircase we bent years ago. The project consisted of flat and spiral bending of angle, channel, flat bar, solid square, wide flange (up to W18 x 76#) and square tubing (up to 10" x 10" x .500" wall spiral bent).

Curved Rectangular Tube Steel Bridge at the Segerstrom Center for the Arts
Segerstrom Center for the Arts, originally called Orange County Performing Arts Center, is a performing arts complex located in Costa Mesa, California, United States, which opened in 1986. Albina Co., Inc. recently completed rolling rectangular tube steel 6" X 4" X .250" WALL A500 GR B bent the hard way to a 14’-3” center line radius. We are unique in how we bend square and rectangular (HSS) for a number of reasons. When we roll bend HSS we typically fill the material with mandrels, where we turn the hollow material into a solid. This helps minimize distortion without increasing the thickness of the material. Also during roll bending we use custom made radius corner tooling to match the radius corner of different thicknesses of HSS material. This match between tooling and material result in much higher quality bends. When we bend stringers for spiral staircases we do not fill the HSS material with permanent structural members to control distortion. Instead, we have developed methods to hot bend or induction bend HSS materials to a spiral configuration without filling the hollow part of the material. This unique process allows our customers to take HSS stringers for their staircases without added weight or inconveniences of filler materials.

Spiral Staircase for "The Hopservatory" at Worthy Brewing in Bend, Oregon
Albina Co., Inc. recently completed 14,000 lbs. of bent steel to create a beautiful spiral staircase at Worthy Brewing in Bend, OR. Bent steel materials for the project included: MC18 X 42.7# A36 spiral bent lengths with flanges in and lengths with flanges out were bent down to a 9 ft plan view radius! Landing pieces were also spiral bent down to a 9’ 8” radius. C15 X 33.9# A36 for the inside landings were spiral bent down to a 8’ 9” outside radius (plan view). Bend, Oregon is located on the eastern edge of the Cascade Mountain Range along the Deschutes River and is a popular tourist town known best for the many outdoor activities offered and world famous micro-brews. Worthy Brewing Co. broke ground on Feb. 24, 2012 off U.S. Highway 20 on Bend’s east side — it’s Bend’s 1st east side brewery – and with a beer garden, hop garden, and Hopservatory. The spiral staircase winds up to The Dome at the top of the rotating Hopservatory where visitors can view the cosmic skies through an OGS 16” RC Reflector telescope.

New Spiral Staircase at Golden West College Huntington Beach, CA.
Albina is happy to be teamed up with a very loyal fabricator on the Golden West College Project located in Huntington Beach, CA. Construction of a new 51,969 square foot building at the center of campus will house all student services. A new spiral staircase with landings was required for the new building and the California fabricator new the best choice for this project was Albina. This project required Tube Steel 16" X 4" X .500" WALL A500 GR B material to be spiral bent for the stringers and also bent flat (the easy way) for the landing supports. The spiral staircase also required some smaller HSS square tubing for stringers and landings out of Tube Steel 6" X 6" X .625" WALL A500 GR B. Everything on this project was bent to AESS standards.
Induction Bending of Rectangular Tube Steel for New Additions at Olympic Towne Center in Gig Harbor, Washington
Albina is working on bending rectangular hallow structural steel for the Olympic Towne Center project in West Gig Harbor, Washington. The Olympic Towne Center development will boast 186,291 square feet of retail space and will anchored by a 65,000 square foot grocery store. This project requires Albina to bend some TS 12" X 3" X .375" WALL A500 GR B rectangular tubing. Part of the project consists of spiral bent stair stringers, induction bent, down to an 6 foot plan view radius! This is a very tight radius for spiral bending HSS members. We are induction bending this material with our in-house designed induction bending method which will result in the highest quality spiral bends seen in the industry. We are also providing bends for the stair case landings. These bends are also down to a 6 foot radius and will all be provided to AESS quality standards.
Steel Bending Contract at Carnegie Mellon University- Distance is Not a Deterrent!
Never hesitate to contact Albina for any of your steel bending needs. We are your “local” steel bending company no matter where you are located! Albina was recently awarded a steel bending contract for Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, PA. That is 2,566 miles across the United States! Our customer wanted the steel to be bent correctly, the first time, to high AESS quality standards, so they chose to contract with Albina. For this project, Albina will be performing some very difficult spiral bending of TS 20" X 8" X .500" WALL A500 GR B material. There are a total of 12 spiral bent sections and 6 sections that are bent flat (the easy-way). Our customer couldn’t afford to make the mistake of using another bending company. They wanted to come to Albina because we have the most experience in the nation with large HSS spiral bending to the highest quality standards.
