Parcel 2 of the Potomac Wharf project in Washington, D.C. is a 6,000-seat concert hall. Working with Clark Construction Group, designers from SK&A/Thorton Tomasetti Joint Venture, and architects from Perkins Eastman DC, the project requires 1,500 tons of steel and encompasses 83,400 sq.ft.
Steel, LLC’s scope of work consists of the fabrication and erection of the structural steel for the large roof trusses and complex structural framing for elevated balcony seating in Parcel 2. Parcel 3A is a multi-story concrete structure with a structural steel transfer truss weighing approximately 125 tons and a height of 2 stories.
Additionally, Steel erected the 632 Wharf Pier Side 4 to the overall project. Since this pier physically sits out over the Potomac River, we had the delighted challenge of shipping 309 tons of structural steel at one time, loaded on a barge, and then erected it on the same barge.
