Automated Storage & Retrieval System

RTP collaborated with The Industrial Company (TIC) for the installation engineering, foundation, piping, and electrical construction of the Hi Rolling Mill and Automated Storage Retrieval System (ASRS) at Norandal USA, Inc. Our actions included coordinating with on-site suppliers, constructors, and engineering firms to ensure smooth interfaces between the caster, building, and finishing areas. We received vendor drawings and converted metrics to the customer's US standard preferences, incorporating them into the general arrangement drawings within the overall building plan. Our team designed foundations for various areas such as the mill, roll change area, mezzanine operating area, and coil and scrap handling areas. Structural design drawings were created for supporting structures like the main pulpit and miscellaneous platforms, considering seismic design conditions. We also provided architectural design drawings for walls and doors, separating operating areas beneath the mezzanine floor, and designed the 2-story PLC/computer and switchrooms. Additionally, we developed interconnecting piping design drawings for various systems, including air wash, roll coolant, hydraulics, lubrication, and fire suppressant. Interconnecting electrical design drawings were prepared based on provided schematics and diagrams.
