Take a closer look at the Amazon curved steel bio-spheres Seattle, WA. Albina Co., Inc. bent 750,000# and 1,050 pieces rectangular tube steel bent the easy way and a portion bent off-axis. Almost 8 miles of welding work and grinding was avoided because of Albina's ability to bend a portion of the project. Almost NO correction was needed during fabrication or erection as the bends fit to the fixtures within 1/32nd of an inch!!!

Building The Amazon Spheres was a project that began in February 2013 and just this month The Spheres will officially open. Numerous Pacific Northwest businesses collaborated to make The Spheres possible. The Spheres website is officially live (https://www.seattlespheres.com/explore-the-building) and you can explore not only the building itself, but also the very unique plant life that inhabits The Spheres. Albina was the steel bender on this project. #curvedsteel #seattlebiosphere #steelbending #rectangulartubesteel #architecturalsteel #architecturephotography #aia #aisc #structuralsteelbending #yoursteelbendingexperts #steelbendingexperts #structuralsteel #amazon #seattle #canron

We can split any size wide flange into “T” and straighten, in our profile roll bending equipment, to mill tolerances. Albina recently split W8 X 24# A992 into 192 pieces of WT4 x 12#, then rolled stem out to a 35 ft radius. We also bent 96 pieces of 4″ X 4″ X ¼” ANGLE A36 to the same 35 ft radius (legout). All of the beam splitting and rolling was for a new City Office Building in Northern California. #yoursteelbendingexperts #steelbendingexperts #steelbending#steelfabrication#structuralsteel#structuralsteelbending#angle #curvedsteel #bepartoftheexperience #beamsplitting #wideflange #tee #legout #milltolerances #rollbendingequipment

In early December, we received notification from the American Institute of Steel Construction that the UC Davis Jan Shrem and Maria Manetti Shrem Museum of Art, of which Albina Co., Inc. did the structural steel bending for, was selected by the AISC awards jury to receive the 2018 IDEAS2 Merit Award in the $15-$75 Million Category. In all, the jury selected 12 projects for the recognition this year for the IDEAS2 Award, the U.S. Steel Industry’s highest honor for building design. Four projects received the National Award, while six projects received the Merit Award, and two projects received the Presidential Award, one for excellence in adaptive reuse and another for excellence in erection engineering. AISC will announce the winning projects as NASCC: The Steel Construction Conference in Baltimore this spring. #steelbending #steelbendingexperts #yoursteelbendingexperts #rectangulartubesteel #curvedsteelroof #architecturalsteel #architecturaldesign #compoundbending #ucdavis #manettishremmuseum #aisc #IDEAS2 #awardwinningproject #buildingwithsteel

The AISC (American Institute of Steel Construction) ran an ad in yesterdays’s USA Today in selected markets across the U.S. in conjunction with a special insert that the newspaper is publishing called “Construction in America.” The ad and supporting information on AISC’s website is focused on debunking claims being purported by the wood industry about the fire resistance of wood used in construction. More and more buildings, specifically in the Northwest, are being designed out of wood. Please take the time to review the information being presented by the AISC at www.aisc.org/woodburns #aisc #usatoday #steel #steelindustrynews #woodburns

As 2017 winds down, we would like to thank you for giving us the opportunity to serve you. We hope to have the pleasure of doing business with you for many years to come. As we reflect on the many relationships we built upon this past year, the very interesting and high-profile projects we have been a part of, as well as the challenges and obstacles we faced along the way, we are thankful that we had such a great customer base to share those experiences with. We are looking forward to a new year that will certainly bring its own set of adventures, but we are ready!

WE GET IT…YOU ARE BUSY! THAT IS WHY WE VALUE YOUR TIME. It seems anymore that there isn’t just a “busy time of year”, every day, throughout the entire year is busy! We get that you are being pulled in many different directions with work, family, fun activities, etc. That is why we want you to know that WE VALUE YOUR TIME and boy do we have a gift for you this holiday season!

The visionary concept of “videotelephony” was first popularized in the late 1870’s in both the United States and Europe. The first systems were developed by AT&T Corporation, first researched in the 1950’s, and failed mostly due to the poor picture quality and the lack of efficient video compression techniques.

Today’s video conferencing systems are no longer just for webinars. Albina has invested in a system that makes video conferencing as simple as one click in an email. Even if you do not have a camera on your end, our video call allows you to see our smiling face, while we both can talk like a telephone call. But it can go much further than that!

We can share our screen with you to review drawings
We can link you to our shop cameras so that you can see your job in progress
We can teach you how to use the calculations application inside our website
We are still learning how this can bring even more value AND respect your time.

Click on this YouTube Video or watch below to see a brief example of what we are now able to accomplish https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mDqNvPR3x8g (and at the same time, receive my holiday well wishes via video!)

Never tried a video call? Drop us a line and we would be happy to show you.

Always fun to actually visit the site of a project! Standing on the spiral staircase at the Kimpton Hotel Vintage Portland, OR. Stringer rolled out of TS 16" X 4" X .625" WALL A500 GR B material the easy way to a 11’ 4” CLR. 3 lengths x 20 ft of FB ½" X 2" A36 rolled the hardway to a 169.32” CLR and 133.87” CLR. #yoursteelbendingexperts #steelbending #steelbendingexperts #steelfabrication #structuralsteel #curvedsteel #spiralsteel #spiralstairs #spiralstairaware #spiralsteelstaircase #spiralstaircase #houzz #hotelvintage #pdx

As part of AISC’s (American Institute of Steel Construction) mission to make sure that architects and developers have accurate and factual information regarding the design and construction of buildings and bridges, they have created a series of white papers exploring various issues related to specifying steel as the primary building material on projects. The first one that I would like to highlight is “More Than Recycled Content, The Sustainable Characteristics of Structural Steel” which focuses primary on the fact that domestically produced and fabricated structural steel used for structural framing systems has an average recycled content of 93%. This white paper also addresses important environmental issues such as reuse, resiliency, water consumption, waste generation, energy consumption and more. Visit AISC for more detailed information and a link to read the full white paper. We also address many of these same issues on our own website in “Facts About Curved Steel.” and in our “Top 10 Reasons to Specify Structural Steel.” #architecturalandstructuralsteelbending #bendingHSS #bendingsteelangle #bendingwideflange #squareandrectangulartubebending #structuralsteelbendingprofiles #yoursteelbendingexperts #bepartoftheexperience #smallbusiness #familybusiness #recycle #steelrecylability #specifiyingstructuralsteel #design #construct #briges #buildings #AISC #architecturaldesign

We have all heard about drones and how they may play a role in our future. Like it or not, drone technology is getting better and better and the areas of the business sector where they can and will play a large roll in the growth and development of certain areas of business. Albina has just finished rolling 50,000# of steel for a new UNMANNED AIRCRAFT HANGAR. For this project we rolled 6” angle, square tubing 3″ x 3″ and 6″ x 6″, as well as wide flange ranging from W8# to W18#. Stay tuned for some installation pictures in the near future.
