ABC Excellence in Construction Award

This new manufacturing facility on a 65-acre site in Columbia, South Carolina, houses two pipe mills that use 40-ton steel coils to produce spirally welded steel pipe ranging in diameter from 24 to 144 inches, with weights of up to 40 tons per 50-foot length. Brasfield & Gorrie provided assistance in planning the facility layout, selecting the plant location, and managing and coordinating the design and engineering process. Brasfield & Gorrie also scheduled, coordinated, and supported the shipment and installation of the owner-supplied process equipment. The facility consists of two pre-engineered metal buildings with nearly 250,000 sq ft of manufacturing, warehouse, and office space. The buildings have eave heights ranging from 40 to 70 feet and clear spans as wide as 160 feet. The steel columns and beams are designed to support one 50-ton and three 35-ton bridge cranes.
