Paint Booth Steel

Ford Kentucky Truck Assembly - Steel Fabrication & Erection - Aristeo Construction  - IMG_2715(1)

Adding to its impressive list of automotive paint shop structural steel projects, our steel department completed phosphate/e-coat and ITM paint booth support steel projects at Ford’s Kentucky Truck Plant in Louisville, KY. These projects were comprised of structural and miscellaneous steel members including columns, beams, plate modules, robot support steel, grating, stairs and handrail which totaled over 800 tons. Due to project site access constraints, the ITM project team separated steel fabrication and erection into 44 sequences as this challenging project was completed between existing paint systems.

On the phosphate/e-coat project, our client, Durr Systems, sourced the grillage steel to a low cost country supplier and steel erection was completed by Aristeo. Not having the steel fabrication under our control presented the project team with work sequencing issues and a unique set of scope of work challenges. Working collectively with Durr, the team was able to resolve the outstanding issues, and steel erection was completed on time to permit the installation of paint process equipment.
