Would you like to see behind the scenes of structural steel fabrication? Ben Hur Construction and Steel Worx, LLC, now merged with Stupp Bros, Inc., is offering a tour of their facility where they fabricate steel framing for large building and bridge projects, including the new Pedestrian Link Bridge at Washington University. The company dates from 1909 and is one of the original steel producers in the US. At the 350,000 SF facility, you will see how structural steel is cut to length, welded, and prepared for connections and finishing before it is shipped to the construction site. There is equipment that descales steel for use as architecturally exposed structural steel in buildings, as well as state-of-the-art CNC equipment, including robotic plasma cutting technology that fabricates a wide variety of structural sections. You will see how Ben Hur barcodes and tracks each steel piece as it moves through the shop to provide seamless tracking of all material. Sponsored by the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC).
