Commercial and Recreational Complexes

Convention centers in Pennsylvania and Texas, stadium and sports venues in Florida, Michican, Maryland and more recently in Quebec, a national museum in Virginia, are only a few of the major projects on which ADF was invited to collaborate because of its proven expertise.

These types of projects often call for a double expertise, that is, the know-how in structural steel and in architecture. In fact, the design of these buildings includes and showcases a large number of architecturally exposed structural steel (AESS) for which a particular attention is to be given to the finish of the product.
