Superior Structural Corporation was contracted to supply the structural steel for an industrial warehouse for a Midwest food distributor. This project required a large quantity of steel joists and metal decking, including approximately 462.6 tons of short and long span joists and girders, and thousands of squares of G60 types “A” and “B” 20 and 22 gauge metal decking. All constructed members were subjected to thorough weld testing to assure quality and functionality, and are in full compliance with Steel Joist Institute and Steel Deck Institute standards. As with all of our projects, testing was carried out by an independent inspection company.

The joist & deck materials for this large-scale industrial warehouse were fabricated in one month (June 2008 through July 2008) in Kenosha, WI; the resources and expertise that we possess enable us to complete projects of this magnitude in a short time period. We maintain a reputation for producing and supplying high quality structural steel members for clients across a spectrum of industries.
