Erection

Our erection operation has been certified by the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC) as an Advanced Certified Steel Erector (ACSE), demonstrating the commitment by our team to deliver a quality project. The AISC Certification process involves an examination to evaluate a company’s quality and safety management system.  Certification is based on a third party audit conducted by people experienced in steel erection practices.  The auditors pride themselves on being thorough, and companies must correct deficiencies to pass an on-site audit. By being certified, independent field inspection may be waved since our quality controls meet all the requirements of Special Inspections as required by the International Building Code (IBC).

The ingenuity and productivity demonstrated by Douglas Steel field staff remains unsurpassed in the erection of structural steel.  By self-performing the erection on all our projects, we maintain maximum control of quality, costs and schedule.

Our site management maximizes productivity, assuring the fastest completion of the steel frame possible. Douglas Steel teams consistently turn over floors ready for other trades in less than half the time of other erectors, therefore expediting the schedule.

Our veteran erection crews have been tried and proven over the years. Under the direct supervision of our Field Operations Manager, Douglas Steel employs a dedicated force of experienced foremen and crews. These well-trained crews have gained an outstanding reputation for their performance on numerous projects of various sizes and complexities.

With an extensive inventory of equipment and tools, these skilled workmen have the support of the latest technology to assure safe and timely completion of even the most difficult erection projects.  With the cooperation of Ironworkers Local 25, all of our ironworkers are current in the MUST drug testing program and our field foreman have completed the required 18 MUST Safety Training Modules and are OSHA 30 hour trained.

Safety is paramount at Douglas Steel, and our outstanding record proves it.
