Block Assembly machine shop steel building

Project Description

Block Assembly Shop

JDG Construction provided design, supply, and installation of this 60,000 Sq. Ft. pre-engineered steel building at Seaspan’s North Vancouver shipyard. It is 70′-0″ high and is designed for 80 tonne bridge cranes.

It has 80’x50′ vertical lift fabric doors at both ends and one smaller fabric door on one side. Large openings in both sidewalls necessitated jack beams to carry both main frames and crane runways across three frame lines.

This new shop is placed next to a smaller, existing shop and includes a 27′ wide cantilevered canopy to manage the additional snow drift loads this new structure would have imposed on the existing building.
