SunSteel partnered with Canam to fabricate, deliver and erect the new Roger’s Place Arena for the Edmonton Oilers. The SunSteel shop in Sunnyside, WA took on the most complicated portion of work fabricating, pre-assembling and painting the 2,000 tons of roof steel. The large box trusses had some elements exceeding 45 tons each all of which were test fit prior to delivery. Fit up in the field went smoothly and the numerous oversized deliveries were made without incident. See the time-lapse webcam here (the main action begins March 2015).
