2016.11.07 - Rolled Beams & Plate for the Vaughan Metropolitan Centre Subway Station
The new Vaughan Metropolitan Centre Subway station currently under construction features rolled beams and plate from Kubes Steel. The new station will connect to the TTC Line 1 Yonge-University subway line, making it possible to get to York University from the station in 7 minutes, and Union Station downtown Toronto in 45 minutes! The new station, part of the Vaughan Metropolitan Centre will bring Vaughan's new downtown to life!
Fabrication of the top of a 930 ft. elevator shaft reline (92 shells x 14’ – 6’’ dia. x 10 ft. long.) Starting from the bottom the shells are more heavily constructed and as we get nearer the surface the shell thickness lessens as do the number of external stiffener rings. The average weight per shell thru the first 30 has been about 46,000 lbs.
Kubes Steel was a contractor for the curved feature for the new U.S. Embassy in London, UK. The aluminum used was extruded, cast or fabricated. The head mounts on the roof that the structure hangs from are carbon steel rolled on Kubes Steel's Roundo R13 and also bent on the Kubes Induction Bender. All fasteners are made from stainless steel.
Kubes Steel fabricated a pair (2) of support girders to be installed at the 8th floor of the Moise SAFRA Community Centre in New York, New York. They measure approximately 57 feet long and weigh around 45,000 lbs each. They are used to support intermediate concrete columns to increase the usable span inside the building.
