The look without the weight...beyond imagination. FORMA Beyond 30' replications of cold rolled and welded steel trusses created from light weight (105 pounds per 30' truss) Epoxy Cold Cast™. Strong enough to support the 3-monitor media center. Photos courtesy PLC Construction and Rival House, Grand Casino, Hinkley, MN.
The process of creating the trusses for the Rival House stated with the Cuningham Group's architect's concept and the designer's vision. We created CAD renderings of the trusses from which, once approved, we made a sample of the primary truss joint from Epoxy Cold Cast™ molded from real steel plates with heavy flaked rusted surfaces. With the sample approved, we created all of the individual truss elements from Cold Cast and the underlying structure from aluminum channels. The trusses were made in 10' lengths for ease of shipping and assembly. We also created an installation guide and video for the GC who did the installation.
