New Bismarck Building Features Massive Single Piece I-Beams

Posted: Updated:

 

  The longest, heaviest I-beams ever destined for Bismarck from TrueNorth Steel of Mandan were delivered today.  Weighing in at 11,000 pounds and 72 feet long each, these two I-beams are being installed at the new headquarters of Affinity Global Solutions in Bismarck.

"We're taking our time to make sure we're getting everything just right.  When we set this and release the crane, it has to be in place," says Tom Vogel, General Contractor, CEO/One Visionary Builders, Bismarck.

The beams took almost two hours to lift and place into their slots -- and run the entire width of the building providing the structure's main supports.  TrueNorth Steel created these massive beams from three separate pieces they fused together.

The Affinity Global Solutions' building has other unique features we'll tell you more about in tomorrow's edition of "Around Town."
