Design & Build
Engineered Rigging has a host of experienced talent under one roof: engineers, fabricators, riggers and project managers who can take your project from start to finish in record time. Our engineers are subject matter experts (SME) for projects in confined or hard-to-reach places, and they have experience replacing missing or inaccurate structural plans, conducting feasibility studies, solving logistical challenges and custom designing heavy lifting and transport equipment to overcome a specific project’s unique challenges. Our in-house fabrication capabilities eliminate the down-time normally associated with waiting for a third-party vendor to provide materials.
Whether we use our designs or yours, our production staff oversees the fabrication process at our Russellville, Arkansas facility, ensuring each and every item is produced to the project’s exact specifications.
Once the materials are fabricated, Engineered Rigging can then provide on-site support staff can handle everything from project management to installing, dismantling, repairing, reassembling and moving machinery to operating heavy lifting and transport equipment.
- Structural steel & pipe
- Equipment, frames & platforms
- Waterjet & welding tables
- Bend, press & cut shop
- Blast, paint & coating processes
Our Russellville, Arkansas facility is equipped with a 1000+ ton load test bed and modular frame designed specifically for heavy lift load testing.
FEATURED FABRICATION PROJECT
Ordinary RFP Yields Unexpected Proposal & Extraordinary Savings
After years of corrosion from sea salt, a Florida-based industrial plant issued an RFP to have its degraded carbon steel pipe and cable tray support structure sandblasted and recoated. The structure ran approximately 400 feet, with several changes in elevation and direction, and incorporated many different sizes of pipe, conduit and stainless-steel electrical cable trays. It was extremely corroded having suffered from delamination.
Our engineers clearly understood the problem, and they had an innovative solution in mind. Rather than sandblast, repair and recoat the existing structure, Engineered Rigging submitted a proposal to replace it with laser-welded 316L stainless steel. Every detail in our project design emphasized corrosion prevention (even the fasteners were a high-strength stainless steel), while maintaining the strength of the original structure.
Engineered Rigging laser scanned the existing structure; created fabrication drawings for all beams, columns and braces; and fabricated all 316L members at our Arkansas facility.
Our value-added solution initially saved the client $2 million in repair costs, and during the next 20 years, the client is projected to save another $1.5 million in future coating costs. Given that 316L stainless steel is one of the most corrosion-resistant materials available, a new finish or coating will never be needed, and rusting will be minimal.
