Industrial Biomass Boiler
This was a renovation of an existing industrial structure that utilized a mixture of both new and existing members from the 1st to the 6th levels and then transitioned to all new steel from there to the 13th level. 1300 tons of existing and new steel was modeled for the process. Coordination with existing conditions and boiler components relied heavily on our model.
National Infantry Museum
1500 tons of steel detailing performed. This building was outfitted with a large dome that was lifted in one piece during the topping out of the structure. It also included special structural accommodations to hold a Bradley vehicle. The building was large and featured many unique elements, including an IMAX theater. Zero change orders were issued by ABSI on this project. This demonstrates our resolve to do everything we can to stand by our fees and not engage in the gamesmanship that is so prevalent in the construction field. This project exhibits the capabilities of our company on time-sensitive, high-profile projects.
Industrial Turbine Structure
In this project ABSI assumed the role of consultant. We produced a model for the general contractor from existing contract documentation provided by the owner. The model was used to coordinate shop drawings, submittals, procurement, scheduling, delivery and general logistics. The model was sent to the field and used heavily throughout the process of construction for metal building components, grating, structural steel, miscellaneous steel, aluminum plates, and coordination with both existing conditions and other trades.
