July 15, 2016 — The Cold-Formed Steel Engineers Institute (CFSEI) presented three Design Excellence Awards during the recent 2016 CFSEI/MASFA (Mid-Atlantic Steel Framing Alliance) Expo at the Historic Inns of Annapolis in Annapolis, Maryland.
The CFSEI Design Excellence Awards recognize small and large projects that exemplify excellence in the structural design of new or renovated structures utilizing cold-formed steel products.
ClarkDietrich Engineering Services, LLC (CDES) was awarded 3rd place for the William P. Hobby Airport Expansion Project in Houston, TX
Southwest Airlines established a hub at Hobby Airport and wanted to expand its international flight offerings, requiring an expansion for the international terminal. The plan called for five new terminal gates and a new parking garage. The project required complex engineering challenges and framing designs with short construction deadlines. Detailed panel drawings and extensive coordination between the engineering and BIM teams were critical to completing the project on time. The project was completed in October 2015.
