The Case of the Disappearing Right Angle: Challenges in Innovative Architectural Steel [N56]

It seems nearly every new outdoor stadium or ball park has a movable roof to provide an ideal climate for the spectators and sunshine for the grass. Along with this increasing number of state-of-the-art structures comes increasing complexity for the structural steel erector. The Marlins Ball Park movable roof is no exception. Learn how the high-tech steel erector LPR Construction put their creative talents to work with this complex 3-section rolling roof. Along with innovative shoring systems and extensive hurricane wind provisions you will learn about their use of a synchronous jacking system to "launch" the roof panels off of the shores and their experience with installation of the project's extremely flexible "swivel" link truss support system
