The Seanic Ocean Systems building offers solutions for deep-water exploration in Katy, Texas. Lonestar Construction was the project’s builder, Steve Husmann was the project’s architect and Loy Construction served as the erector. The building utilizes both gable symmetrical and single slope framing. Mid-West’s PBR and Ultra-Dek® roof panels were specified components for the project, in addition to Mid-West’s PBR wall panels. Stucco and masonry were used on the office building’s exterior for favorable aesthetics. The building also holds a large test pool similar to those at NASA and a crane with a 20-ton crane load.

The CAID Industries project, which was named the 2014 Mid-West Structure of the Year, is located in Tucson, AZ. Fast Fab Erectors, also of Tucson, was the builder, erector and roofing contractor on the project, and Division II was the general contractor.
CAID Industries is a leader in metal fabrication in the Southwest United States. Their facility includes 20 acres of fenced-in yard and office and production facilities.
CAID’s 54,800 square foot structure is modular rigid frame, 160’ x 240’ with a 40’ eave height. Since it is in an air corridor at Tucson International Airport, the peak height was restricted. Designers used a ½:12 roof slope to obtain the maximum eave height possible, given the height restraints. Ultra Dek was used for the roofing; end wall and sidewall panels are Shadowrib.
The center interior modular rigid frame supports two 30-ton, 60’ bridge cranes; an outside south bay has two 20-ton, 43’bridge cranes. They are located in partition walls with bayonet doors and when the hydraulic single leaf doors are open, there is unrestricted crane movement through the partition walls.
All roll-up doors up to 30’ wide are 22’ tall. It also features 72 skylights, LED light fixtures, brightness activated T-5 fluorescent fixtures, and 5’ wall lights that extend down from the eaves on both sides.
CAID manufactured their own custom gates for the project. They are one-piece metal with the CAID logo cut into the gate design.
Construction began January, 2014 and was completed in May, 2014.

The project consists of three buildings: a crane building, a warehouse building and an office building.
The 80’ x 200’ x 28’ crane building has a 1:12 roof slope designed for a five-ton top running crane; the beams, brackets, stops and rail were manufactured by Mid-West.

Phoenix is a 2014 Mid-West Design Build Excellence Award winner. Phoenix, a Houston-based horizontal and directional drilling company, required large areas unobstructed by support columns in their 112,500 square foot building.
To meet their needs, they utilized the patented Long Bay framing system to create 65’ interior bays. Long Bay had previously been used to create 60’ interior bays. For the Phoenix project, engineers were able to design a structure that would accommodate 65’ clear span bays, a first for the Long Bay system.
