Streamlining the assembly line
Modern Custom Fabrication rolls and welds massive pieces of steel into enormous storage tanks, pressure vessels, and more. When their multiple building facility in downtown Fresno turned out to be on the route of the new high-speed rail, they had the opportunity to start with a new building on a new site. Since enormous vessels move better in a straight line than around corners, a site was found that could accommodate a new, very long, very tall building shell—970’ long, 60’ tall, and 70’ wide, to be exact; not to mention a new, 4,000 SF modern office building. Between the size of the footings needed and the pad requirements for the heavy equipment, an impressive amount of concrete sits underneath this structure. You can bet we had a blast doing the math on this one.
