Electric Power Provider Chooses Vulcan Steel for Powerful Building Solution

When you are responsible for providing power to millions of customers, you must ensure your equipment is in tiptop shape. So when America’s largest electric utility provider needed a new building that would protect and store its valued equipment against the unpredictable weather patterns looming across America, the company chose Vulcan Steel Structures. The facility erector was Veritas Construction.

“Vulcan’s product quality and engineering standards allowed our on-site erectors to complete the building a week ahead of schedule,” said Matthew Miller, Senior Project Manager at Veritas. “And they have been at the ready to respond to our project needs and questions throughout the entire build.”

The building is gabled with a 70’ x 102’4” x 23’ eave. It has a 24-gauge Galvalume SL216 standing seam roof and 24-gauge standard color PBR wall panels. It also features a 26-gauge standard color PBR liner panel. There are two 5’ x 102’4” boxed canopies down each sidewall. All the structural steel is hot-dipped galvanized, and the secondary framing is pre-galvanized material.

“I enjoy working with some of the finest people in our industry here at Vulcan and have developed many personal relationships that will continue long after my time at Vulcan Steel,” Todd stated.

Todd’s favorite part of his job is marveling at Vulcan’s finished products. “I really enjoy seeing completed projects, especially those that are complicated,” he said. “We are involved in many large and complex projects, and to see those go from drawings on paper to steel in the air is very satisfying.”
