3WIS welding 50 tons of construction steel
A construction steel project with EN 1090-2 EXC2 requirements creates lots of activity at 3WIS workshop in Munkebo
Cooperation is the way forward
In the summer heat, 3WIS is well underway with a major project in construction steel. We are welding stairs, walkways, balconies and rails and protective measures to a newly built apartment complex in Solrød. 3WIS solves this task in close cooperation with Langkjær Stålbyg.
3WIS is responsible for welding and later assembly and installation of the entire steel structure, while the partner Langkjær Stålbyg is responsible for the production of drawings with the end customer and delivery of semi-finished steel. Cooperation has been ongoing so far since May and is due to be tested in late summer.
Control the steel
“We are pleased to have the opportunity to undertake a major building steel task in cooperation with our partners,” CEO Kim Jacobsen says, and continues, “Since earlier this year we were EN 1090-2 EXC4 certified, this is a task we should be able to undertake. But it is of course always exciting to see if our relatively new set-up is geared to the challenge. But it certainly looks like this. We have put together a good plan with our partners and we are focused on keeping our part of the schedule.”Kim Jacobsen
The project will produce 50 tons of building steel, which will be produced with documentation according to the project. EN 1090-2 EXC2 and CE mark. This includes, for 3WIS, a strong focus on preparation, quality control and a timely process of the documentation process. Among other things, new WPS’s have been created for the task.
“Our welding coordinator has prepared meticulously and ensured that new procedures and WPS’s have been created for the task. As soon as the materials land in our workshop they are reviewed for any defects. Only after checking they are released for use. We have some skilled, certified welders who have worked on them. Therefore, we have been able to continuously have NDT controls and have the final welded parts of the structures passed on to surface treatment. And most importantly, we have a good handle on our documentation and quality. Our welding coordinator and chairman prepare all drawings and welding log and our welders have kept the focus on getting their documentation done immediately. Therefore, we do not have a backlog and have a good overview of the course and how far we have come – it gives peace of mind.”Kim Jacobsen
