Manufacturing Facility Buildouts

As the construction manager for Ground Effects, Sachse Construction performed buildouts and renovation work at four automotive manufacturing facilities throughout Michigan, including those located in Dearborn, Detroit, Flint, and Warren. The scope of work varied between locations and included electrical, mechanical, exterior repair and restoration, flooring, structural steel, overhead doors, and architectural interior finishes. Everything was installed to meet the specific needs of the end-users. Each project included an expedited schedule to meet the client’s deadline.

Project challenges included adhering to an accelerated schedule, utilizing existing site conditions as much as possible, installation of large overhead doors in masonry wall openings, and installing large trench drains to existing flooring that did not have a proper slope.

Strong communication and work coordination were key to executing the schedule. Sachse Construction worked with trade partners to find solutions and get work in place correctly and in a timely and quality manner. Additionally, previous experience assisted in understanding schedules for installing specialized equipment and coordinating with other renovation activities.

Sachse Construction completed this project achieving an accelerated schedule and ultimately assisting Ground Effects meeting production deadlines for their automotive clients.
