St. Raphael Church
Single story church addition with hip & valley roof construction with hip beams framing into joist girders. The connection of the hip beams to the joist girders was made with the inclusion of wide flange vertical web members in the joist girders. Structural Steel was fabricated by Firelands Fabrication & erected by Forest City Erectors. This project involved a tremendous amount of coordination between Vulcraft, Fireland Fabrication & Forest City Steel Erectors to ensure proper fit-up for a winter erection.
