“The flexibility of these frames gave us the freedom to move and adjust them as necessary, which translated into enormous cost and time savings.”
One of the leading structural steel subcontractors in the Southwest had been using standard, welded-in angle iron roof frames on their job sites for decades. But when they were planning a project with 565 roof frames, they heard about QuickFrames’ bolt-on, adjustable structural frames and decided to give them a try.
Discovering Glaring Mistakes
Midway through the project, the team discovered a monumental problem: The skylights had been drawn incorrectly, so the orientation of the supporting roof frames had to be switched. In total, 376 skylights were drawn with the wrong orientation, along with 80 roof drains and rooftop units. This meant having to stop and start over.
QuickFrames Saved the Day
If the fabrication company had used traditional, welded-in angle iron roof frames like they historically did, they would have had to cut out hundreds of frames or abandon them entirely. Instead, they were able to simply remove them and move them to their proper locations. By using QuickFrames, they experienced:
> $375,000+ savings
> More than 6 weeks of scheduling saved
“The speed saved the project,” said the fabrication company’s general manager. “We were anxious about trying something new, but we couldn’t be happier that we did. The flexibility of these frames gave us the freedom to move and adjust them as necessary, which translated into enormous cost and time savings.”
