The expansion and modernization of Plant 65 is one of many projects completed for Shaw Industries Group throughout the years. Shaw supplies carpet, resilient, hardwood, laminate, tile and stone flooring products and synthetic turf to residential and commercial markets worldwide.
This project, Plant 65 in Andalusia, Georgia, included demolition of the existing northwest portion of the plant and construction of a new expansion for extrusion equipment. The expansion features a four-story tower and warehouse, totaling 300,000 square feet, in addition to a 6,700-square-foot underground electrical vault and a 10,300-square-foot chiller building.
The project involved numerous complexities that required precision planning and execution, and our EMJ team did a great job leading the charge and promoting on-site collaboration, enabling the steel schedule to be accelerated by six weeks. The facility also remained operational throughout construction.
