An Alberici joint venture constructed this $178 million campus-style automotive assembly plant using the design-build approach. The facility was awarded LEED Gold Certification from the U.S. Green Building Council, making it the first manufacturing facility in the world to achieve any level of LEED certification.
The campus includes a 690,000-square-foot body shop and a 590,000-square-foot general assembly facility, interconnected by 101,000 square feet of elevated conveyor/utility trestles. The team also constructed a 120,000-square-foot administration building, featuring a 15,000 square-foot state-of-the-art data center, which controls the entire 3.4 million square foot complex.
To accomplish design and construction within a 20-month time frame, GM and the Alberici design-build team utilized 3-D technology that continuously merged building design information with material handling, product, and process tooling design information into an interactive model.
The project attained the GM Safety Excellence award for an exceptional safety record of 900,000 work hours and zero lost-time injuries.
