Benteler Steel Tube Manufacturing Facility
The facility will produce 320,000 tons of steel tube annually along with 650 full time jobs.
This project was supported by a group of international construction and manufacturing enterprises including Benteler, Danieli, and Walbridge.
Landpoint began work acting as a third party surveying company. However, as the project progressed the scope of work expanded to providing quality control for mission critical components in the facility that were required to be within millimeter accuracy.
In addition, we performed a 3D laser scan of the completed building sections. This was to provide statistics for all “cans” and “grout boxes” for machinery. These statistics were accumulated by the point cloud which was exported to determine the deviations of each element as well as relative elevations.
The seamless tube facility is located at “The Port” in Shreveport, Louisiana. The Port is located on the Red River Waterway just south of Shreveport-Bossier and has immediate access to barge, rail, motor freight and air transportation.
