The Industrial team was retained to design a large truss monorail spanning 80 ft to permit installation of new 150kip header including connections to existing steel. The team designed the trussed monorail support system to accommodate large loads over a significant span and coordinated with the erection contractor to select unique crane equipment permitting a single crane to be used in the place of two, thereby, reducing the footprint requirements for crane space and associated costs. Furthermore, a lift plan and monorail system was developed to minimize making unnecessary temporary or permanent modifications to the existing structure and equipment.
Project scope included systems structural design, lifting plan, project 3D laser point cloud scanning and 3D CAD modelling to preconstruct and derisk construction activities.
