V-6 Engine Building Expansion
Toyota Motor Manufacturing Alabama (TMMAL) underwent a 300,000 SF expansion to facilitate production of an additional 216,000 V6 engines per year.
To accommodate existing plant production requirements, preliminary project work was split into two distinct phases. Phase 1 involved preparing the plant infrastructure for new construction. Modifications were made to truck docks, the plant ring road, trailer parking, guard shacks, turn style, and the truck scale. The GMI building was also relocated. Phase 2 preliminary work included the relocation of underground site utilities, earthwork, and building foundation construction.
Preconstruction and foundation work was followed by the award of the project general contract package. Aristeo’s contract consisted of complete building enclosure and site preparation to receive V6 engine machining and assembly equipment. Major general contract components included road construction, concrete slab on grade, metal panel wall system, thermoplastic (PVX) single-ply membrane roofing, masonry, loading dock equipment, overhead and underground utilities, fire protection, HVAC systems, substations, and electrical power distribution and process related utilities.
