Constellation Brands and Owen Illinois, signed an agreement to expand the packaging plant of Industria Vidriera de Coahuila that will become the largest in the world. Cano Estructuras, as part of the project of the fifth furnace, was in charge of the Engineering, Manufacturing, and Assembly of the structure. The project consists of a model of more than 2 thousand tons of structural steel, which was modeled in the Tekla Structures Software, from which all the manufacturing drawings were obtained as well as the information for the assembly of the structure. The model consists of rolled profiles, as well as rigid frames with elements formed by plates (Tapered Beams). During the modeling and engineering process, it was necessary to model concrete elements such as some walls and foundations for the correct location of embedments and the control of the coordinates of all the construction elements.
