For many years, Vallourec has been producing quality steel frame structures, and more specifically hot-rolled circular, square and rectangular Structural Hollow Sections. Our solutions have been successfully integrated into some of the world’s most stunning architectural and structural projects. They have been used to construct iconic stadiums (Wembley Stadium in London, Stade de France in Paris, Allianz Arena in Munich), airports (New Bangkok International Airport, Hong Kong Airport), train stations (Berlin Central Station), and halls (Landesmess in Stuttgart, Hall 3 in Frankfurt).
Also, in order to give buildings and structures a safe and solid foundation even on unstable ground, micropiles are used for stabilization. Vallourec's Tecnipile® range of hot finished seamless tubes offers ideal solutions for all kinds of micropile applications, including building foundations of all kinds, mounting pads and stabilizers for landslide and flood areas.
Our products are also integrated into the construction of rollercoasters and other types of amusement rides. Steel girders made of our rectangular and square MSH sections are used in the design of rail systems.
In addition, Vallourec developed PREON® box, a unique iterative planning software for column-free hall construction. This technology drastically simplifies the construction of wide-span steel structures and saves up to 30% in materials. Easy to use, it provides the planning data needed for processing a project at every phase, from foundation to detailed engineering.
As your trusted partner, our teams work directly with architects and engineering consulting firms for all of our projects.
