IDS Group received an award for “Excellence in Structural Engineering” from SEAOC for the Vehicle and Cargo Inspection System FRP Platforms – Port of Long Beach Middle Harbor Terminal, by the Structural Engineers Association of California (SEAOC).
The project consists of the design and construction of two Vehicle and Cargo Inspection System (VACIS) platforms using Glass Fiber-Reinforced Polymer (GFRP) composite pultruded structural shapes. The VACIS platform is a one-level U-shaped structure with a coverage area of 530 square feet. It is an unoccupied structure but is periodically utilized by Customs and Border Protection officers during the inspection of shipping containers. .
