ConXtech to Demonstrate ConX Modular Pipe Rack Technology During Alberta’s 2014 Global Petroleum Show

Share Article

ConXtech Bringing Modular Structural Steel Technology to the Canadian Market; on display at Calgary’s Stampede Grounds June 10, 11 & 12.

“The workshop you put on in Edmonton last week was truly impressive. ... You are revolutionizing the thought process behind steel construction to the benefit of the erectors and owners." --Chris Curven, Applied Bolting Technology, April 2014

The ConX Modular Pipe Rack solution will be on display at the Global Petroleum Show in Calgary, June 10-12. Stop by outdoor booth #3002 to see sample pipe rack and learn why the structurally robust ConX™ System is an ideal solution for efficient design, fabrication and construction of pipe rack and processing structures.

At GPS 2014, hear how ConXtech and its growing network of certified fabricators leverage standardized connectors and automated manufacturing technologies to deliver modular and typically brace-free structures. Learn how this technology-enabled approach accelerates design through delivery, allowing industrial facilities to come on-line months or years earlier vs. more conventional structural options.

Nearby, at 15th and Macleod, you’ll see a 45-ton ConX Pipe Rack Module, complete with a Modular Access System and other components. At a recent demo in Edmonton, six ironworkers from Local 720 (four of whom had two days of ConX training) assembled this ConX kit of parts in 6 hours and 17 minutes. Both local and international ironworkers’ unions support ConXtech’s structural steel framing system after this firsthand experience. Over 100 oil and gas industry owners, EPCs and constructors attended the April demo. Watch a Time-Lapse of the ConX Module Assembly.

ConXtech is working with several major energy companies and recently gained TQMS approval by ExxonMobil, prequalifying ConX for global deployment. Come see the true modularity of ConX pipe rack, access platforms and structures, and how they simplify design, assembly and operations for the oil and gas industry.

About ConXtech, Inc.:

ConXtech Inc. is a privately-held building technology company based in Hayward, CA that has developed ConX®, an innovative Chassis Based Modular™ structural steel building system. ConX enables rapid design, fabrication and field assembly of structurally robust, cost efficient and sustainable structures for the industrial, high-density residential, healthcare, data center and commercial markets.

Key technologies include: Precisely machined Lower & Locking® steel moment connectors which are robotically welded to beams and columns in a highly automated factory. The company has also developed CAD software tools, specialized fixturing and lean manufacturing processes that result in dimensionally precise structures or “Chassis” to which other modular factory built building components can be efficiently and predictably attached.

ConX structures are typically brace-free and can be designed as Ordinary Moment Frames (OMF) or Special Moment Frames (SMF) meeting the highest seismic criteria as well as the DoD’s ATFP standards for blast and progressive collapse resistance. ConXL™ is approved by OSHPD for use in California hospitals and is codified by the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC), published in AISC 358-10. ConX is also LADBS approved and Cradle to Cradle Certified (CM) at the silver level, distinguishing it as the most sustainable way to build with structural steel. For more information visit:
