Early in the construction of a cable-stayed bridge project located in the New Jersey/ New York area our customer contacted F&M MAFCO to provide fabrication and assembly of 4 lifting beams for their project. Due to the design of the bridge not just any standard lifting beam could be used. The customer provided us engineered drawings of a three component beam that would be remotely controlled with the use of (8) hydraulic rams.
This project was far from a typical fabrication job, the scope also included load testing of each component, procuring / installing a complete hydraulic control system, blast, prime, paint, assembly and finally shipping to the site. The multiple aspects of this job allows us to stand out utilizing our CAD detailer, fabrication shop, heavy equipment department, heavy equipment paint shop and logistics department providing a single source partner that the customer can rely on. Contact us to learn more about our custom fabrication services!
The scope of this job started with detailed shop drawings based on the engineered drawings provided by the customer. In addition to the fabrication of these beams F&M MAFCO also supplied the required shackles to complete the assembly.
This project is one of many construction aids required and supplied to one of our large civil construction customers for use on a cable-stayed bridge project. The access platforms provide a safe working area for the cable connection points at the bridge pylons.
These platforms are designed to be unbolted and moved as the construction of the bridge deck progresses. Along with structural steel fabrication, F&M MAFCO can also install steel / wood decking and has the ability to prep, prime and paint any component at our facility.
