Valley Metro Rail – Northwest Extension Phase I, Dunlap Station Artwork Structural Design
Transit Infrastructure Support Phoenix, Arizona
Structural Grace, Inc. provided structural design and detailing services for a 60’x60’x20’ high structure as part of the artwork for Dunlap Station. This artwork structure provided shade and art elements that “funneled” the natural lighting around the station. The steel structure was designed with 20’ bays with intermediate framing at 10’ spacing and was designed to support both shade material and approximately 10 art pieces. SGI designed the main steel frame, steel support pieces for the artwork and the connections to the main frame and provided post design services including special structural inspections.
