The building support columns of a major auto manufacturer had been so badly damaged by forklift traffic that its structure was found to be at risk. Versa was called in to do the repairs. We were first tasked with relocating the utilities and fire protection before work could commence. We performed heat straightening to the columns and added stiffener plates as required by the PE, due to the severity of the damage. A total of 9 columns were repaired in all.
Upon completion, not only was the customer 100% satisfied, it eased the plant workers minds and also increased the aesthetics of the plant as it was also being renovated with all new equipment and the interior updated.
