Heilmann Middle School prominently features exposed steel architectural farming. The architect designed the building using steel instead of more traditional wood or steel for architectural details. The curved steel beams and rolled joists result in a facility with an attractive appearance.
The design also resulted in difficult connection design and fabrication of the resulting steel. With decades of steel construction experience Ross Steel was able to preserve the architects vision while also delivering the great structural strength the building required.
