Curved Cold-Formed Steel Framing in Fashion Center Receives Top Honor


This past April, Radius Track Corp. received the Excellence in Construction Award from CISCA, the Ceiling and Interior Systems Contractor Association. The Award, presented this week at CISCA’s annual convention, recognizes the company for excellence in designing and fabricating curved cold-formed steel framing for the Del Amo Fashion Center in Torrance, Calif. The project received top honors, the Gold award, in the West Region’s Ceilings category for difficult and complex projects.

CISCA applauded the complex framing design and manufacturing contributions Radius Track Corporation made to the successful delivery of the 102,000 square-foot ceiling of complex geometry and tight tolerances. The ceiling of curvilinear clearstory and skylights, some 65 feet above the finished floor, flowed into expansive curved soffits, soffit drops and sometimes gentle curves barely visible to the naked eye. All of these shaped by Curved-Right, the line of custom framing Radius Track designs with 3-D modeling, CNC fabricates, and delivers as a kit of parts.

“Daylight from the clearstory windows and skylights create ever changing patterns on the curving planes of the ceiling. The finishes over our cold-formed steel framing bring that lightshow to life.  We are grateful to have CISCA recognize our ‘behind the scenes’ contribution” said Luanne Ketchie, director of sales at Radius Track.
