The Balmorhea new campus project is a unique structure due to the radial geometry of the project located in the Balmorhea in Texas. The major items included in the scope are Columns, base plates, anchor bolts , Steel moment frame columns, Roof framing, Roof opening frames, bent plates, Expansion joints, Baffle bent plates, Drag struts, Fabric shade connections, Clerestory over two areas.

There were total 21 sequences to detail in this project & we completed the detailing of project  for approval and released 70% of steel  for fabrication .

It was very challenging to detail on the radial as per the provided radius with intermediate supporting members. All members are in skew and the geometry to match the requirements is a challenging activity. Each area is unique .
