Barton Malow is providing design-build services and self-performing civil, concrete, and structural steel work on the construction of the 251,000-SF engine facility for General Motors (GM). When complete, the plant will manufacture DMAX diesel engine components for GM’s Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra heavy-duty pickup trucks.
With a tight speed-to-market timeline, the DMAX construction team strategically began pouring foundations on site, with the goal of foundation work to stay two phases ahead of steel placement. This strategy fast tracks our self-perform services, creating efficiency while saving GM money.
Despite the challenge of an accelerated timeline and managing winter weather, the end result is going to be more than worth it, especially to a Brookville community that was devastated by destructive tornadoes in the spring of 2019. This new facility is expected to bring more than 100 jobs to the hard-hit area and aid in the community’s economic recovery.
