Alberici completed an extensive remodel of Fiat Chrysler’s Windsor Assembly Plant to prepare for production of the newest Chrysler minivan.
This project featured removal and installation of new body-in-white process equipment, demolition and reworking of the general assembly area, and replacement of process tooling.
The body-in-white equipment package included demolition of existing equipment, installation of 850 robots and setting 400 tons of conveyance header steel.
The tooling package included demolition of 50 percent of the existing general assembly and the reworking and modification of 121 systems with supporting concrete and civil works.
Alberici performed design, fabrication and installation for the water test booth including a new final line body wash and vehicle blow off.
In order to meet the aggressive schedule, Alberici engaged field supervision from throughout the US and Canada to mobilize to the site during the critical 14-week shutdown period. At peak manpower, the team had 1,200 tradespeople on site. Due to successful sequencing, the project was completed a month ahead of schedule.
