Manufacturing Facility – Press Foundation Houston

Houston, Texas

This client is a supplier of titanium extrusions for applications such as oil tool housings, valve bodies, and aerospace components. They invested millions of dollars in their 5,000-ton extrusion press, the world’s newest specialty metals extrusion device.

Stiver Engineering provided structural design by designing a plan to demolish a portion of the building’s interior slab and construct a stabilized subgrade for the installation of the reinforced concrete press slab. Additionally, we were provided the press loading conditions and developed a reinforced foundation design based on the proposed loading.
