Heartland Automotive – automotive plant
✅ 300,000 sq ft, new construction automotive plant
➡️ 60' ft high bay areas
✅ Dryfall open ceilings
✅ Miscellaneous metals: handrails, ladder cages. etc
🔹 This was a 2 Phase Project
➡️ Phase 1: 130,000 sq ft complete in 7 days
➡️ Phase 2: 170,000 sq ft of early schedule delivery
🔹 4200 gallons of dryfall applied
🔹 Fast track schedule
🔹 Access impeded by additional uni-strut installation
➡️ Required additional prep protection
➡️ Slowed production
➡️ Maintained delivery schedule
▪️ DECO introduced early truss/support steel application method
➡️ Coating was applied following roofers and insulators installation while staying ahead of the concrete floor installation
✅ Lifts on dirt ground
✅ Busy construction trade traffic & equipment
This is a beautiful example of our Deliver Early Coating Options in field operations. Over 300,000 sq ft of fast paced construction schedules were delivered in two phases...
🔹 Dryfall was applied to entire ceiling deck, a variety of metals were prepped and painted, and CMU/drywall finishes.
What was interesting about this project:
There are a lot of pro-active logistics to work out for smooth execution and camaraderie with other trades; a DECO core strength. The stakeholders were surprised and excited to see finishes early in the project because typically finishes are one of the final pieces to the construction site; due to DECO's innovative ideas, we Deliver Early Coating Options in the shop and field.
DECO completed each phase ahead of schedule and below budget.
