Gestamp

McCalla, Alabama

Staying flexible and an early design-build partnership helped the construction team stay efficient, on schedule, and reduce facility impact so our client could remain operational during demolition and expansion.

The Gestamp Alabama Plant 2 in McCalla manufactures metal automotive components. Our client’s operation had outgrown the existing building on property, and they brought us in early for a design-build partnership to help plan and build an 134,000 square-foot expansion building. The challenge was demolishing the building’s exterior wall, building a new structure, and tying the two buildings seamlessly together, without negatively impacting the manufacturing plant’s ongoing work. Through regular collaboration with our client and plant employees, we were able to offer suggestions and solutions during the design phase that improved the efficiency of construction while ensuring the plant remained operational so our client could deliver on commitments to their customers without interruption.
