Due to SME experience and expertise, the IHC Medical Office Building was erected in an incredible 25 crane days with zero change orders to the contractor. This is a fast track project highlighting the skill and craftsmanship of SME.
Intermountain Medical Center is a high-tech complex project consisting of six buildings, two of which are connected. Due to the high seismic region, 646 CoreBrace™ buckling restrained braces were incorporated to protect this variegated hospital campus. With its extensive history of fabricating and erecting complicated structures, SME Steel was able to complete this project in record time.
St. Alphonsus Regional Medical Center was constructed between two existing buildings and swallowed a working skybridge. This conventional braced structure was built in a horseshoe shape to allow continued access to the skybridge during construction.
SME Steel expertly crafted the steel to connect with concrete sheer walls as well as the glass wall design which required flawless AESS beams and fabricated and erected a skybridge connecting the new structure to the existing full-functioning cancer hospital without any interruption of patient services.
Oregon Health and Science University Peter O. Kohler Pavilion was constructed on and attached to the side of a rock cliff dropping six stories on one side and creating a ground level entrance on the other. The structural design utilized a double moment frame with cruciform columns and was built in an extremely congested area requiring construction to take place inside the footprint of the building.
More than one hundred cruciform CoreBrace™ Buckling Restrained Braces (BRBs) were incorporated due to the high seismic area. Additionally, SME Steel fabricated and erected a unique 40ʹ roof screen. Thanks to SME Steel's expertise, this project was completed under budget and ahead of schedule.
