Shaw team celebrates progress at Plant 65

The EMJ team joined Shaw Industries, E&H Steel, ROPAC Steel Erectors and other trade partners in celebrating the construction progress at Shaw’s fiber manufacturing plant expansion in Andalusia, Ala., on Wednesday.
All on-site team members gathered in front of the structure for a group photo and then enjoyed lunch together, complete with a raffle and door prizes.

The expansion and modernization of Plant 65 began in April 2017 and will be completed later this year. Construction includes 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 involves numerous complexities that require precision planning and execution, and our EMJ team has done a great job leading the charge and promoting on-site collaboration, enabling the steel schedule to be accelerated by six weeks.

This is the fifth project on which EMJ has been fortunate to serve as Shaw’s partner.

“It’s great to be working with our friends at Shaw again, and we are proud of all the hard work the EMJ team, Shaw and our partners have been putting into the project,” said Jack Bowen, Executive Vice President of EMJ Construction. “They have done a wonderful job so far, and we are excited to get to celebrate the progress they have made.”

EMJ team members on this project include Adam Ankers, B.J. Boone, Matt Uebler, Brad Johnson, Mason Hill, Chad Marler, and Jake Mammen. Espen Pittman, Safety Manager with CORE Safety Group, has also played a vital role in the project’s success.
