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.
Clay Development and Construction was the General Contractor and designer. Amalda Enterprises was the erector and roofing contractor. Roof panels were Double-Lok® on a ½:12 roof slope. End wall and sidewalls were PBR and tilt wall.
