|Powell Steel Corporation is capable of erecting projects with precision and efficiency. Prior to arriving on site, careful planning is done to insure the proper placement of cranes to maximize erection with little or no additional movements. The project is then sequenced by the best order of erection. Also, careful consideration is given to
workforce and equipment requirements. Then an anchor bolt survey is done prior to beginning erection so that potential problems can be reduced or eliminated. Once erection begins beams and columns go up at the rate of fifty to eighty picks a day while constant attention is paid to both the vertical and horizontal alignment.
Combining experienced employees with the necessary equipment is the key to our erection departments outstanding performance. Twenty-three experienced field workers are divided among the current projects. There can be as few as two or as many as fifteen
employees on a project depending on
workforce requirements. Typically there is a large
workforce requirement when floor or roof deck is being laid and welded. Each project requires one or more cranes to meet its lift requirements. We have two ninety-ton conventional cranes, a thirty-five ton Grove hydraulic and an eighteen-ton Grove hydraulic deployed at all times. With the four cranes, a five-ton telehandler, two sixty feet
person lifts and four welding rigs our
employees are well equipped to meet any project erection demands. Our erection department has the experienced employees and equipment necessary to erect a wide variety of projects.
Our skilled crane operators are a valuable company asset. Their experience and wisdom are key ingredients when it comes to erecting a project with the required speed, accuracy and safety. All our crane operators have over twenty years experience in the steel erection business. Along with the
foreperson they provide the professional approach necessary to compile an outstanding performance and safety record.
