Our work at McNeil Engineering takes us all over the western United States. Here’s a look at a project our Structural Engineering department recently completed in Fort Collins, Colorado.
For the new LDS Temple in Fort Collins, McNeil Engineering was the Specialty Structural Engineer of Record for the precast concrete façade on the building’s exterior. These concrete panels created the exterior building enclosures and were individually engineered by our very own Matthew Roblez, S.E. SECB out of Sandy, Utah.
This project required help from an entire team of folks, not only in the U.S. but also outside of the country. The concrete panels were fabricated in Mexico City, Mexico by the Pretecsa Corporation. Once the panels were finished, they were carefully transported to the job site in Colorado.
The communications process in and of itself was quite a feat. The general contractor on the project was based in Salt Lake City and the erectors were based at the job site in Fort Collins. Thanks to modern, web-based technology, we were able to keep in touch with everyone from Mexico to the Rocky Mountains in order to get the job done.
