Peddinghaus Corporation was pleased to fabricate a thermally generated structural steel base to support a statue for the AISC. Using Peddinghaus thermal cutting technology, the base was fabricated from a W40 profile.
It's holding up AISC's copy of the Robert P. Stupp Award for Leadership Excellence. The stand and statue are in AISC's reception area. The statue, which is about 27" tall, is cast bronze, and it depicts an ironworker with a welding torch working on sloping steel frame. The award is given to individuals who, through their leadership excellence, have had a great impact on advancing the use of structural steel. The latest recipients were Bob Owen of Paxton Vierling Steel, Omaha, NE and Terry Peshia of Garbe Iron, Aurora, IL.
