The Powertrain V-6 Engine Assembly Plant project consisted of the design and construction of a 442,000-square-foot engine plant facility, located in Flint, Michigan. The project was part of a $450 million dollar re-investment into the General Motors Van Slyk Road Manufacturing Complex.
Ideal Contracting was selected based upon their recognition as GM Supplier of the Year, as well as the extremely aggressive project delivery schedule. The design-build team, along with the GM project team, co-located in a collaborative environment to expedite the design and decision making process. As a result of this fast track, integrated process, the GM Flint Global V6 Engine Facility broke ground December 17, 2004 and was completed by October 28, 2005.
The project was designed and constructed utilizing the 3D BIM process, in order to eliminate field conflicts and reduce overall schedule and cost as part of the integrated design-build process. From initial client contact to owner occupancy, the project duration was just under nine months and included incorporating full design and engineering.
