AGA presents to mark excellence in the use of hot-dip galvanizing
The American Galvanizers Association recognizes Galvan Industries, Harrisburg, NC, with its highest award for excellence for its work on Lowe's headquarters parking deck.

The American Galvanizers Association recognized Galvan with its 2004 Most Distinguished Award, the highest award the AGA presents to mark excellence in the use of hot-dip galvanizing. Held annually, the Hot-Dip Galvanizing Excellence Awards competition is open to engineers, architects, contractors, fabricators and galvanizers who use after-fabrication galvanized steel in "ideal, creative, monumental or otherwise impressive fashion." The industry group ranks winners in 12 categories but presents only one Most Distinguished Award.

For the Lowe's Companies, a home improvement retailer ranked No. 50 on the Fortune 500 list, Galvan supplied galvanizing for nearly 1,700 tons of steel used for a parking structure on the new corporate campus north of Charlotte. Included were hot-dip galvanized structural columns, fascia beams, concrete embeds, lintels, handrail and "smart" castellated beams. Galvan's facility in Harrisburg offered the capability of easily galvanizing beams up to 60 feet and longer for use on the parking deck.

First planned as a conventional concrete structure, the deck design was fast-tracked with galvanized components. The revised design produced an aesthetically pleasing parking deck that blended perfectly with the adjacent headquarters building -- and cost about $300,000 less than a pre-cast concrete structure. Calloway, Johnson, Moore & West, P.A. of Winston-Salem served as project architect and engineer.

According to the AGA, winning projects reflect "the finest achievement in the use of hot-dip galvanizing in project design and concept." Recognized projects are featured in AGA publications. They're also highlighted in the group's specifier newsletter, Galvanizing Insights.

Since 1958, Galvan Industries has provided the ultimate in corrosion control to steel fabricators and manufacturers. The first hot-dip galvanizing operation in the Carolinas, the company has grown to become the largest capacity contract galvanizer in the Southeast.
