Aristeo's Ford Motor Company Vehicle Performance & Electrification Center (VPEC) Project

Aristeo is working on Ford Motor Company’s revolutionary research and testing facility, the Vehicle Performance & Electrification Center. VPEC’s 14 acre campus includes three attached buildings, a wind tunnel that features speeds up to 200 mph, a battery lab that will contain over 180 battery chambers, and a support facility.

Included in our scope of services is:

  • Excavating 240,000 cubic yards of material
  • Placing 22,000 cubic yards of concrete for foundations, floors and walls
  • Fabricating and erecting over 2,100 tons of heavy structural, miscellaneous, and architectural stair steel
  • Executing Aristeo’s largest single concrete pour to date of 3,000 cubic yards, at 400 cubic yards per hour
  • Pouring Aristeo’s largest cast in place wall to date, at 48-foot tall with a 28-foot octagon box out
  • Pouring two double curved contraction walls, at 47 feet and 43 feet tall
  • Erecting Aristeo’s largest ever structural steel project at 1,800 tons

For this project, Aristeo’s teams carefully coordinated the sequencing and scheduling of activities of multiple crews and erection cranes across the job site, allowing the steel to be erected on multiple fronts alongside large concrete pours.

Aristeo teams also provided installation services, installing the main fan and the model motion and pressure management system for the wind tunnel. The entire project is scheduled to be completed in May of 2020 and the project is on schedule for that date.
