Structural Beams at Liberty Park Installed

As the Structural Engineers for the Memphis Sports and Events Center at Liberty Park Memphis, it was exciting to see our design literally being put into place this week!   The video shows half of the 290-foot truss being raised from the ground, where two ¼ sections were spliced together, into place. The total weight of each half of each truss is approximately 35 tons. It takes about six hours for each half of each truss to be installed, including installation of stabilizing bracing members and roof joists.
