Project Spotlight: Blasting and Coating the San Diego Library

Wednesday, October 08, 2014

In 2012, Cor-Ray was hired by the City of San Diego to work on the new Central Library in the San Diego Public Library system. This blasting and coating project lasted five months, from March to August 2012, and is a public showcase of Cor-Ray's handiwork.

The San Diego Public Library has a storied past, dating back to 1882. The library was the first west of the Mississippi River to be awarded the Carnegie Library grant. In 2010, when construction began on the new central location, Cor-Ray was the contractor in California called on for blasting and metalized coatings of the welded areas and steel structures.

The centerpiece of the design of the new Central Library is the steel and mesh domed roof. Cor-Ray was hired to blast and metalize the welded areas on the structure. After blasting, a zinc metalizing coatings system was used on the steel structures. The iconic structure is a focal point of the neighborhood, and is made possible through the work of Cor-Ray.

Cor-Ray has years of experience in industrial work, including blasting, coating and much more. If you need a contractor in California that you can trust, contact the experts at Cor-Ray.
