Curved Steel Canopy at Arsenal on the Charles Life Science Campus
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”.

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.
