SME Steel Project Portfolio


Presbyterian Intercommunity Hospital Plaza Tower

Presbyterian Intercommunity Hospital Plaza Tower is an impressive 500-bed, full service, acute care hospital. This structure is located between two existing buildings, adjacent to the existing Emergency Department, and includes replacement of the Hospital’s Surgery Department (which remained fully functional until the opening of the replacement facility).


Banc of California Stadium (LAFC)

The focal point of this structure is a 190,000 square foot roof canopy (complex geometrical rolled pipe, multi-beveled connection) which creates the backbone of this architectural masterpiece and encompasses five concourse levels, 35 box suites, terrace balcony, and 100,000 square feet of multipurpose space that is purposely shaped to retain the roar of the crowd.


Moscone Center

This unique structure was designed in two distinct phases in order to keep half the convention center fully functioning throughout the duration of construction. For the overall project, almost half of the work will be completed underground, allowing for optimum connection between existing and new construction of the two phases.


Provo City Center Temple

The Provo City Center Temple, weighing in at 7 million pounds, was raised onto 40-foot-high steel stilts to allow excavation underneath. Three interior levels were fabricated and erected including four corner spiral steel staircases designed to mimic the original wooden staircases. The roof was designed to replicate the original roof including the center tower, measuring 160 feet from the ground.


San Diego State University Aztec Student Union

SME Steel completed the steel package of this project with more than 30,000 field hours and a flawless safety record. Adding to the complexity, this project was erected utilizing two cranes over an operational subway tunnel, University campus facilities, and the Metropolitan Transit System. Due to SME Steel's skill and craftsmanship, this project schedule was impressively completed in roughly half the expected time frame.


City Creek

SME Steel connected these two city blocks with a 320,000 pound skybridge featured on National Geographic’s program “World’s Toughest Fixes.” This incredibly unique structure is positioned with only one anchor pin. The remaining three feet float yet remain fixated by gravity with steel plates on either side to restrict movement while allowing flexibility.
