Case Study 5:

Project:
Arizona State University South Campus Expansion
601 E. Apache Blvd.
Tempe, Arizona

Contract Amount: $2,012,581

Project Contact: Dennis Scalva


For this expansion Maricopa Metals were responsible for:

  • Two (2) Sets of Seven (7) Story Tower Stairs
  • Structural Beams and Columns
  • Fifteen (15) Sets of Three (3) Story Stairs

There was a very tight schedule for this project, with a small project site. These obstacles made it difficult for storing materials as well as having a staging area to work in. Due to the lack of “lay-down” area we were challenged to working directly off our shipping trucks. The tight schedule pushed us to work with speed and efficiency, allowing other trades to come in and do their work as soon as possible. Although this project had its challenges, it is always rewarding to be a part of higher education.
