Structal-HSC Attends the Topping out Ceremony at Denver International Airport
June 23, 2014
This past May 22, representatives from Structal-Heavy Steel Construction (Structal) joined the mayor of Denver, a city counselor, the CEO of Westin Hotels and various other officials at the topping out ceremony for the Westin Hotel that’s being built at Denver International Airport (DIA) in Colorado.
Surrounded by hundreds of workers wearing hardhats and safety vests, Denver’s mayor gave the signal to hoist up the final beam, which measured 38 ft. (11.6 m) and weighed 1,800 lb (816.5 kg), while he simultaneously made his way up to the top of the building carrying the last bolt that would be used to secure the component in place.
Slated to open in late 2015, the construction of this 433,000-sq. ft. (40,227 m2) hotel is well on schedule, to the great satisfaction of those responsible for the project.
Structal obtained a contract to provide a number of services in the scope of the South Terminal Redevelopment Program at DIA, including preconstruction, engineering and project management services, in addition to the fabrication and installation of components for the hotel’s structural steel frame and two spectacular canopies.
