Aristeo was the general contractor for Honda’s extension of an existing conveyor line to accommodate a new product line in the assembly plant.
As general contractor on this project, Aristeo oversaw the expansion of an existing conveyor line, which involved lowering the floor to accommodate new equipment for a new product line. Aristeo managed seven different trades, including our own self perform crews that performed demolition, earthwork, steel fabrication and installation and concrete placement services. The project completed on time, on budget and with an excellent safety record of zero incidents.
Aristeo provided demolition services for 32,000 square feet of concrete floor in the facility, excavating 2,000 cubic yards of material and lowering the floor by three feet across two-thirds of the space. Aristeo also poured 1,100 cubic yards of concrete and oversaw the placement of both resteel and steel embeds to support the weight of facility equipment. The project also required the plant’s existing electrical and mechanical utilities to be extended for the new lines. Aristeo oversaw subcontractors as they extended electrical systems by 2,000 linear feet and added 1,800 feet of new piping – both of which needed to be extended through the active plant to the new space.
Placing concrete in an active facility presented a unique problem – the space would not fit a traditional concrete pump truck and they could not disturb plant production. Aristeo proactively developed a solution and utilized a spider boom to extend the reach of the pump truck. This allowed concrete to be placed precisely where needed with minimal disruption to plant activities. We also completed work during night and weekends to minimize disruption to the plant.
