AK Steel

Project: AK Steel – Rockport Works

Project Description: NSC’s scope of work on the AK Steel project, awarded under a design-build lump-sum price basis covered the structural steel, supply and installation of the roofing and siding, along with installation and electrification of the cranes and the high-bay lighting and electrical services. According to John Rolfes, project design engineer of Computerized Structural Design, Inc., the input from NSC allowed quality design solutions that were economical and more conducive to erection. NSC safety pre-planning led to ground assembling 35 x 120 foot roof modules for each structure and then setting two into place before infilling the intermediate bays. This technique eliminates riskier assembly at the roof elevations.
