Google Spruce Goose beautifully transformed the iconic and historic hangar that once housed the construction space for the Hercules IV airplane—world renowned as Spruce Goose—into state-of-the-art, class A office space. SME Steel was honored to be part of the construction team to help build this creative “building inside a building.” SME Steel carefully installed and welded the struc¬tural elements which make up the four interior levels (three floors + mezzanine) while ensuring the original wood frame was protected throughout. The steel structure is designed to resist seismic loads utilizing CoreBrace buckling restrained braces (BRBs). This impressive project was completed on time and on budget.
