Curved Steel Canopy at Arsenal on the Charles Life Science Campus

SGA’s, Arsenal on the Charles, is a new life science campus in Watertown, Massachusetts with three new research and laboratory facilities on the bank of the Charles River. SGA specializes in highly sustainable life science buildings and campuses. In addition to the 4-story office and research lab, the campus offers a green space and community gardens where you will find the canopy Albina bent for this project.

We bent 11 lengths of Tube Steel 8” X 6” X .375” WALL A500 GR B to net 14 bent pieces. All parts were bent by Albina to various radii ranging from 4’-3” to 105’-0”.

Albina bent 40,000# of steel for the steel tree-like columns and curved “steel” branches that create the biophilic-inspired archway entrance for the Freyer-Newman Center at the Denver Botanical Gardens. Albina bent 60 pieces of W8 X 31# A992 the hard way to a full scale layout. We also bent Tube Steel 8" X 6" X .500" WALL A500 GR B the hard way and MC8 X 20# A36 the hard way. The Freyer - Newman Center is a LEED GOLD building, designed by Denver’s Davis Partnership Architects. The Center houses six classrooms; four galleries; new herbaria for vascular plants, mushrooms and slime molds; laboratories; a new library and a coffee shop. Steel Tree-Like Columns and Curved Steel Branches for the Freyer-Newman Center at the Denver Botanical Gardens
