Speedway Industrial Park Phase 1



Speedway Industrial Park Phase 1


the project

Each commercial tilt-wall construction project creates the challenge of turning a rectangular concrete structure into a unique, aesthetically-appealing business facility. Powers Brown Architecture and Ridgemont Commercial Construction are industry leaders and their expertise is on display at Speedway Industrial Park.

The Origin

Architectural Fabrication’s preconstruction team has developed strong ties with Ridgemont Commercial Construction (RCC) and its project management and onsite teams have successfully completed projects for many years. Powers Brown Architecture (PBA) is a committed specifying partner and they initially designed Speedway with Arch-Fab’s Atlas Canopies in mind. PBA’s specification resulted in an “invitation to bid” from RCC and Arch-Fab provided a turnkey proposal and ultimately was awarded the opportunity to perform the scope of work.

The Challenge

While the Atlas Canopy, Arch-Fab’s flagship canopy, was specified, the building design included columns at corner entries and special overhead doors that made “typical” canopy installation impossible. This project required the unique skill set of a specialized Div 10 Sun Protection subcontractor, Architectural Fabrication.

The Solution

The partnership of PBA, RCC and Arch-Fab resulted in a level of collaboration that allowed design, engineering, fabrication, and onsite personnel to develop the unique requirements presented at Speedway. The canopies required custom notching, artisan sheet metal fabrication, and well-planned coordination on the jobsite between RCC, Arch-Fab, and other subcontractors. RCC’s onsite project manager, assistant project manager, and superintendent cooperated with Arch-Fab and demonstrated leadership and exemplified what it means to be committed trade partners.

The Products

Atlas Canopies with 12″ Clear Anodized Fascia and 12″ Wide Silver Soffit

The Results

The Speedway canopies are beautiful, functional and were completed on time for Ridgemont Commercial Construction and in the time since completion, we have partnered together on many additional projects. Architectural Fabrication is grateful for trade partners like Ridgemont Commercial Construction and Powers Brown Architecture and our team is committed to serving and growing with them in the years to come.
