Worthington needed to build a steel finishing plant adjacent to a steel mill in rural Fulton County, Ohio. BlueScope Construction was engaged as the design-build general contractor to develop the 112 acre site, construct the building and plant infrastructure, and coordinate design requirements with the process equipment prime contractor/engineer. The processing facility consists of 90,000 square feet of receiving and storage with a 150' clear span and two 40 ton cranes. Material then moves through the 47,400 square foot pickling line which features a 15 ton crane and specially treated structural steel to slow corrosion. The galvanizing line includes four cranes with a minimum hook height of 75' to a maximum of 125' (eave height of 135') at the galvanizing "pot". The final area is the 195,000 square foot finished goods storage and shipping bays with six 40 ton high speed cab operated cranes in 100 foot wide aisles. Green features of the building include the translucent roof and wall panels providing daylighting to the facility.
