Project Profile for Ardex LP, Stockton CA

Sisler and Sisler is a construction management company that provides a turnkey service for large scale commercial development projects. For the past two decades, they have completed hundreds of construction projects.  As a result, Ardex LP chose Sisler and Sisler to build its new manufacturing and training facility in Stockton, CA.

Part of the design build project consisted of a 1600 sq. foot tower / building which would sit on top of the newly constructed warehouse building.   The tower would begin construction at 30′ above finish floor and top out at 50′ above the slab!!

Working together, Fabri – Steel West Inc. and the experienced team at Sisler & Sisler came up with a workable design.  The plan called for using structural steel and cladded insulated flat panels to provide strength to handle the loads while matching the tilt wall construction.

Constructing the project required a symphony of personnel and equipment working together such as, a crane to lift the panels in place, an 86′ aerial lift, 1 knuckle boom lift, and a stand by forklift.

An additional requirement was to install a roof curb on top of the tower.  The roof curb would serve as a functional way to remove and repair specialized equipment inside the building.  The roof curb was designed with a removable lid that was 12×21 and weighed over 1500 pounds!

In addition to the Tower, a 70 x 30 x 22 pallet storage building was constructed, and approximately 330 lineal feet of 30′ tall liner panels were constructed to finish out the inside of the warehouse building.

According to Kenny Sisler, President of Sisler and Sisler “We were very pleased with the work of Fabri Steel West Inc on the Ardex Project and will use them on future projects that require pre-engineered steel”
