Additional Information

Arise Technologies, a manufacturer of solar cells, in order to meet the needs of advanced manufacturing specifications, required a portion of their existing facility to have a clear height of 45 feet. Yet the facility only had a height of 28 feet. The simple solution was to make use of their existing 60,000 sf building and raise the roof of a 27,000 sf section of it. In addition to the roof raising, new crane columns were installed.
