This project was challenging in that we were to construct new press pits and building additions in conjunction with constantly changing design specifications due to external factors.
The Grassmere Solution:
Grassmere self-performed the work in order to adapt to changes quickly and cost effectively.
This 27,600 square foot plant addition is a 44-foot high, metal stamping plant that features a total of seven presses. They consist of one 1000-tonne, one 600-tonne and five 500-tonne presses all sitting in a custom-formed, poured concrete pits, which was completed by Grassmere’s own forces. The building also has one 60-tonne and two 25-tonne overhead cranes for handling large rolls of coil steel for the presses.
Marwood Metal Fabrication continues to be one of our many satisfied repeat customers. Grassmere Construction has successfully completed the design and construction of five major plant and office expansions for Marwood at their various locations in the past.
