Douglas Steel's Ottawa Street Power Station Project Featured in Modern Steel Construction

The December 2010 issue of Modern Steel Construction featured an article titled "An Inside Job," which highlighted the Ottawa Street Power Station project in Lansing, Michigan.

The project -- fabricated by Michigan-based Douglas Steel Fabricating Corporation -- required construction of a 10-story steel-framed office building inside the existing power station structure without disturbing its historic exterior.

The project's structural engineer of record created a Revit model of the structure; a CIS/2 version of the model was then imported into SDS/2.

Using a 3D SDS/2 model, Douglas Steel was able to visually demonstrate new steel members and existing members that were being incorporated into the new structure.
