Project Details

Waterford, Ohio
65,200 square feet
End Use: Manufacturing and Industrial

This 65,200-square-foot combined cycle plant, built in eastern Ohio, houses three gas turbines and one steam turbine. Butler Heavy Structures provided a hybrid structural steel framing system that incorporated both conventional and pre-engineered components for the Gas and Steam Turbine buildings. A pre-engineered standard product line was used for the structural steel and cladding systems on the complex’s ancillary buildings.

Welded-up, stepped-crane columns were used in both the Gas and Steam Turbine buildings to support top running cranes of 61-tons and 78-tons respectively. Framing in the Gas Turbine building was complicated by a 50′-roof step and heavy support framing for three large filter house units on the roof of the low bay. A standing seam metal roof system and metal wall system were used on all of the buildings.
