Just member that whatever you put up, by the time the plant closes down they will have hung every pipe, conduit, cable tray and what-have-you that will fit off of your structure so design for some future loads.

I have a client who wants to install a 2" airline across a 60' outside space with vehicular traffic below so he needs some kind of structure to span the 60'. The request came in as "design me a truss" and I thought that maybe I could just use a pair of open web steel joists spaced a couple feet apart with bracing in between to make a pipe bridge that can be used for other runs of conduit or piping in the future. However, I can't help but wonder if there is an easier, more efficient way - like maybe just one larger diameter pipe with the airline run inside or a rectangular HSS with the airline run on top. Any thoughts/experiences to share?
Thanks in advance
