By March 14, 2016February 25th, 2021Steel Erection

Steel erection involves positioning, aligning, and securing components on equipped foundations to form a complete frame. In addition, the process of steel erection includes the installation of planking and metal decking. As one of the most dangerous of all construction activities, steel erection requires careful planning to ensure safety and efficiency. At Wollam Construction, our licensed engineers provide structural analysis’ and extensive research to determine the necessary bracing, guying, shoring, and hoisting requirements.
