Lansing, Michigan – 1385 Tons
When Douglas Steel initially bid this project to Clark Construction, the costs exceeded the budget and the timetable extended beyond the schedule limits. Douglas answered the challenge by partnering with Ruby & Associates to redesign the entire structure. This effort resulted in a $200,000 savings in cost and three week improvement in the schedule. The final design utilized 1,385 tons of structural steel in the framing of the 156,000 sf 4-story building. Two of the building’s corners were accentuated with monumental circular stairs and exposed tubular steel supporting a tilted out curtain wall.
