Lotspeich Company Inc. of Miami contacted Radius Track to supply Curved-Right pre-curved framing to help deliver their scope of work at the new American Airlines Arena NRG Solar Canopy.
Architect: DLR Group, Seattle
General Contractor: Skanska
Framing Contractor: Lotspeich Company Inc. (Miami)
Curved Framing: Radius Track Corporation
Radius Track precisely fabricated the framing sections around 16 photovoltaic skylight openings to meet specification and delivery requirements for the project. To be exact: 418 ten-foot lengths of G90 coated structural grade track and 246 ten-foot lengths of G90 coated structural grade angle. Each piece was pre-curved to one of eight different radii ranging in size from 6-foot 5-inches to 10-foot 9-inches.
“Radius Track can bend the heavy gauges in a way that they retain structural integrity,” says Scott Masson, president of Lotspeich Co. “Additionally, they provided a quick turn around and high quality product to help us meet the project schedule at a time when our labor resources were stretched thin.”
