Rigid Building Systems



Design Build Projects
Many design build projects such as those shown on these pages require structural engineers to work directly with the architect during the conceptual design stages to determine the structural framing requirements for these types of special projects. RIGID’s engineering expertise becomes evident for these types of structures. With over 100 years of professional engineering experience on staff, including both owners of the company, RIGID can offer innovative and economical structural solutions to these complex structures.

The large clearspan requirements for the ice skating complex shown above were further complicated by the fact that the architect desired a curved roof. The architect approached RIGID about the feasibility of accomplishing this. RIGID created a scaled model in their shop to determine which type of panel and the maximum bending radius that could satisfy the required result.

The unique structure shown to the right encloses Six Flags Astroworld’s newest ride, an indoor roller coaster. The
architect designed the building to resemble a Mayan ruin pyramid. RIGID designed the structure according to specific deflection criteria required for the dryvit wall finishes that were applied to the outside of the metal panels. These dryvit
wall finishes achieved the desired exterior effect.

The 98 foot eave height structure shown above, towers over the Houston Ship Channel.
This structure also supports several 40 ton overhead cranes. To control the deflection,
RIGID designed and manufactured seventy inch deep columns.
