An International BrassWorks Featured Project:
Seneca Allegany Casino
 
Location:
Seneca Allegany Casino,
Salamanca, NY
 
Project Overview:
Custom built Railings at Stairs and Radius Balcony Rails.
 
   
The Task:
To Complete in 6 weeks, Phase 1 of the Rails at the Stairs and Escalators, approx; 130'-0" Linear feet of Custom Rails with a 2 ½" Bronze capping.
To fabricate Phase 2, both The Balcony Curved Rail and The Guard Rail at the Top of the Escalators, in a total of 6 weeks.

 
   
Requirements:
Custom Powder Coated curved steel panels rolled to a specific radius that is continuous with mitered ends of rail returning to the wall. The capped top hand rail being a 3" O.D. single slotted Bronze extrusion tube, which was used both on the Balcony and on the Guard Rail at the sides of the Escalator.
 
   
Special Features / Materials:
The 3" Bronze extrusion had to be annealed then rolled to the required radius without distorting the shape or the actual contour of the tube itself. Both sets of railings had to have mitered corners welded, for the transitions that occurred in the angled position of the Balcony and the Viewing area of the Guardrail. Plus, all 3" Bronze capping to be finished in Brushed Satin on a longitudinal plane, with a Clear Powder Coat protective applied.
 
     
Unique Challenges:
This project included meeting stringent State Building Codes in producing all rails to pass said codes, and in having a P.Eng; stamp all drawings prior to fabrication.
   
     
IBWorks Solutions:
Extended valued engineering alternatives, in order to meet and exceed Building codes. Additional structural applications, that where approved by both customer and architect. Hidden fasteners that offered replacing parts if damaged in day-to-day usage. Delivered to site earlier than expected by General Contractor & Customer.
