CSD provided valuable Value Engineering during the bid phase. The “Super Diagonals” were originally designed as 30”x60” plate boxes filled with reinforced concrete. We worked with the fabricator to come up with a steel only solution that reduced the field schedule by 3 months and brought the cost closer to the original budget. These modifications resulted in this project being the first in the country to use the largest steel shape available, W36x925. Even though this change was made, the nodes connecting these members together were still complex. CSD performed this service primarily with proprietary connection design software, AutoCad and SDS/2.
