When deciding which company to contract for the fabrication and installation of grating on one of the largest offshore oil platforms that has ever been built, a customer realized he already knew the right choice.
As the medical industry quickly changes, the need to keep up with current technology becomes ever-present. A university in California recently accepted this challenge when renovating one of their medical research facilities, originally built in 1952.
