Oregon State University “Student Experience Center Canopy”

Albina Co., Inc. recently provided the curved steel beams for an 8,000 square foot glass canopy at the Oregon State University (OSU) Student Experience Center, installed in Corvallis Oregon. The canopy links the new Student Experience Center with the Memorial Union. The canopy is not only functional (allowing for a protected space when it is raining during outdoor events) but also a signature structure on the Oregon State University campus. 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.
