Engineered Rigging has a host of experienced talent under one roof: engineers, fabricators, riggers and project managers. Working together, we take a project from start to finish in record time.
We are experts at replacing missing or inaccurate structural plans, conducting feasibility studies, solving logistical challenges and delivering turnkey design-build services.
Whether we use our designs or yours, our production staff oversees the fabrication process at our state-of-the-art Russellville, Arkansas facility. We produce each and every item to exact specifications. As a bonus, our in-house fabrication capabilities eliminate the down-time normally associated with waiting for a third-party vendor to deliver materials.
Once the design-build portion of a project is completed, our heavy lifting experts can provide on-site technical support and project management. We also install, dismantle, repair, reassemble, and move machinery as needed.
- 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.
