New Orleans, Louisiana, United States
When Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans, the public library system was significantly impacted. Most of the public libraries were damaged beyond repair and inevitably closed. In March of 2017, the city broke ground on the new Nora Novra Library. Originally built in 1954, the library was located in a portion of the city that was devastated by Hurricane Katrina. The original structure was 2,500 square feet, but the new building will be 7,800 square feet and will feature a children’s reading area, computer station, multi-purpose rooms, and staff offices. The project is expected to be complete in the summer of 2018 and the cost is estimated at $3.3 million.
When Portland Bolt got the call to make the anchor bolts for the library foundations we jumped at the opportunity. The anchor bolts required were F1554 Grade 55 which is one of our specialties. Each anchor bolt required a custom square plate washer to provide pullout resistance in the concrete. With our 94,000 square foot manufacturing facility, we were up to the task to manufacture the parts in a timely fashion in order to keep the contractor on schedule for their concrete pour. Do you have a project that requires customs anchor bolts? Give Portland Bolt a call! Our team of experts is standing by to assist you with your next project.
