492,000 sq ft
ABC Excellence in Construction Award
AGC Build Alabama Award
This total renovation of a 492,000 sq ft manufacturing plant for Navistar International entailed complete demolition of the plant’s interior and installation of new process equipment, new block and head line, crank case line, and assembly and shipping areas. Interior foundations included more than 40,000 cubic yards of concrete. New additions provided 80,000 additional square feet to this facility, which manufactures V6 and V8 diesel engines for Ford Motor Company. The contract was for construction management; however, the owner directed our forces to self-perform much of the concrete work to ensure completion in time for early arrival equipment. The project followed an extremely aggressive schedule. This fast-track project required construction to maintain pace prior to design completion. Much of the design involved coordination with existing construction that had been modified through years of additions and renovations.
