Abaxial team members have had significant engineering experience on the following representative structural engineering projects.
This plating operation moved to a new facility. The existing crane was supported by the building. When the crane was moved to its new location, it could not be attached to the building’s walls. Designed new support structures for the crane. Designed secondary containment for the plating tanks that met regulatory requirements.
Designed a reinforced concrete bridge used by semi-trucks to cross a waste water line at Cargill Flour Mills.
Designed the structure steel roof-framing members used to attach a kettle hood and ductwork to the existing facility
Performed a feasibility structural investigation on a 47,000 square feet pre-cast fire-damaged warehouse. Concrete cores and reinforced steel were extracted from critical areas of panels damaged by fire. These samples were tested: the concrete for compression and the steel for tension, by certified laboratories. On receipt of results, we recommended which panels were sound and which panels required repair. Prepared a Finding of Facts Report and presented it to the City Council Committee to verify that the facility was structurally stable for renovation.
