ArcelorMittal Dofasco No. 6 Galvanizing Line APC Tower
Hamilton, ON

The APC tower for AMD’s No. 6 galvanizing line stands 235 feet tall and was built in the middle of an existing mill building. The tower is a cooling tower that is integrated with the building envelope.   It is a very unique structure which required us to design to very exacting tolerance and building stiffness.
