Capabilities

Prospect Steel utilizes approximately 400,000 square feet of fabrication space.

We utilize CNC controlled equipment. This includes burn tables, plasma tables, drill lines, punch lines, and automated scribers for fitting. We have overhead crane capacity up to 80 tons. Prospect Steel can fabricate all aspects of your project, but we specialize in heavy columns and girders. We lead the industry in fabricating plate girders to meet Technical Report 13 requirements. Prospect Steel is also a full-service bridge fabrication company. We are capable of fabricating simple beam bridges as well as bascule and pivot bridges. Our ability to fabricate plate girders allows us to specialize in girders with sweep and camber.

Our facility in Little Rock is located in an industrial port, with easy access to barge loading and nearby interstates. Our facility in northeast Arkansas is located within a few miles of the Mississippi River, with easy interstate and barge-loading access as well. The central locations of both shops give us an outstanding ability to ship anywhere in the United States by truck, rail, or barge. Prospect Steel's locations give it an immediate advantage due to its proximity to Nucor Yamato in Blytheville, Arkansas. This reduces our inbound freight allowing us to be competitive in markets across the country.

Prospect Steel's method of running a project is second to none. We utilize BIM Technology on all of our projects. We place a project manager at the job site on all complex projects to coordinate fabrication, sequencing, delivery, erecting, and field corrections.

Prospect Steel is an industry leader when it comes to electronic data submission between all stakeholders on a project. We routinely utilize our models to work within a virtual job to expedite approval, the RFI process, sequencing, and scheduling.
