Major hotel chains, theme parks, sport stadiums, airports, churches, museums and more have turned to CST’s experienced design and engineering team to assist them through the many important phases of their projects and in helping them to discover innovative solutions.

The CST advantage of using aluminum over steel has proven to be the key aspect in creating structures that are durable, attractive and virtually maintenance free. Aluminum’s strength, lightweight and corrosion resistant properties are a few of the contributing factors to creating well balanced innovative structures.

Covering Space Creatively refers not only to the structural framework but the abundance of cladding materials used to create the entire building envelope. CST often clads with glass, perforated panels, metal panels, fabrics, polycarbonates fiberglass or virtually any kind of cladding system available in the marketplace today. Artsand Science, Leisureand Gaming, SocialServices, TransportationRetailand Commercial and many other buildings require distinctive structures to cover great spans with no columns or internal supports.
