V&M Star – Construction and Engineering – 2012
In early 2010, V&M Star announced it would build a pipe rolling mill next to its existing Youngstown operations. The state-of-the art facility consisted of a 23 acre under roof, seamless hot rolling mill. After installation, the building is 1,000,000 square feet, 5/8 of a mile long, 1/4 of a mile wide and 110 feet tall. The facility allows V&M the ability to more than double the mill’s work force.
The structural portion of project included the installation of 21,000 tons of structural steel, 107,990 sq. ft. of grating, and 14,427 lineal ft. of crane rails. The mechanical scope of work included the installation of the equipment for the pipe rolling mill such as the Billet Cutting & Furnace Feeding Line, the Rotary Hearth Furnace, Piercer Mill, Fine Quality Mill, Tube Transport & Reheating Furnace, Stretch Reducing Block, Cooling Bed, Cut to Length & Collecting Systems, as well as the installation of the interconnecting piping.
Construction portion of the project utilized 90% direct hire man hours.
