This project was challenging from a design perspective as no guy wires were allowed, therefore, the base of the tower had to be designed to support the rigorous wind and seismic conditions of Long Beach, CA. Being the tower was very tall (45’) and relatively small in diameter (2’Ø) a systematic design approach was required to satisfy the strict design requirements as well as efficient fabrication methods. The use of standard ANSI flanges was also another obstacle as they added far too much dead weight at the top of the tower.
GSM Industrial was able to address and overcome these challenges by doing the following:
The project was completed on time and within budget. It utilized all of the GSM offered services such and engineering, design, project management and exceptionally skilled welders and fabricators.
