PROJECT DETAILS:

The Client needed to be able to monitor the facilities gas flares to safely ensure their continuous operations. After finding unacceptable lead times on pre-fabricated monopoles, TAI Structural Engineering pivoted and designed two steel trussed towers to cut the schedule in half.

TAI-SCI fabricated the galvanized steel towers with a 4′ square base tapering to a 2′ square top at 80′ tall. Each tower was constructed of (5) pre-welded assemblies, consisting of 4″ schedule 80 pipe columns and 2″ schedule 40 horizontal and diagonal bracing. The assemblies were then galvanized and shipped directly to the Client site. This allowed for improved quality control, faster, safer installation and limited disruption to facility operations.

TAI assigned a construction manager to oversee the fabrication and erection process. The construction manager additionally monitored and maintained safe contractor installation activities, procured all materials, and delivered the completed project ahead of the projected schedule.
