JSR’s Metals and Specialty Metals Division fabricated an entrance arbor by retrofitting two salvaged DC-9 tail wings to replicate an aircraft’s wing span. Each tail wing was altered by removing excess structural steel to decrease the weight and through the design and fabrication of mounting hardware and support brackets connecting the two wings together and the overall wing’s connection to two support columns. The newly fabricated wing formed a 35 ft wing span and was mounted on two 11 ft tall steel columns fabricated to look like structural airfoils. JSR’s attention to detail included 4 inch tall and 1 inch thick water jet cut aluminum steel letters attached to the front of the wing spelling “LACKLAND AIR FORCE BASE GATEWAY TO THE AIR FORCE" as well as the addition of the Air Force’s emblem and LED lighting mimicking an actual aircraft’s wing.
JSR fabricated and installed thirty nine 6 inch diameter removable pipe bollards including associated sockets, sleeves, and caps as well as fabricated and installed over 2,900 ft of guardrails with grab rails, handrails, intermediate handrails, and wall mounted handrails throughout the facility and grandstands
JSR completed Old Georgetown Road Crossing over Cowhouse Creek Bridge project 2 months ahead of schedule at Fort Hood, Texas.
