Titus Construction Group selected Radius Track Corporation to deliver a fully engineered framing solution for a 70-foot diameter spiral coffered dome project with a 9-week schedule.

The dome required finishing on both sides, 2-hour fire rating and had to fit into space initially designed for a concrete formed coffered dome. That meant all the light-gauge structural framing elements had to be streamlined and wrapped in 3-layers of gypsum wall board.

Radius Track developed the light-gauge box beam truss design and provided a fully engineered, single source solution for Titus Construction. After the design was approved, Radius Track manufactured the pre-fabricated trusses. Titus installed them using chain hoists, scaffolds and cranes. Next, Titus used scissor lifts to install the Radius Track pre-curved purlins and hat-channel, followed by the compound curved spiral framing. Finally, Titus continued their installation of drywall, sheathing and acoustic finish.

Bill Hassel, Titus President & Owner, said “Radius Track added value and solved technical challenges for the project at every step, from engineering, consulting, and fabrication through installation assistance. It seemed as if their Senior Design Technologist was available to us 24/7.”

We’re thrilled that we helped our customer deliver extremely complex geometry that met the original design intent with support they could count on. Radius Track delivers cost-effective, constructable solutions for curved and complex surfaces.
