Public Safety Building Cantilevered Roof

The construction of the 50-foot-long projecting roof on the new Perkins Will–designed Public Safety Building in Lancaster, Texas, was not without its nail-biting moments. The entire steel assembly for the double cantilever was manufactured off-site and installed using supports. Once the welds were complete and the post-tension cables secured, the supports were removed and the cantilever was allowed to settle into place.
