Project Profile – Chrysler Motors

Project Category: Manufacturing, Warehouse & Distribution

Location: Detroit, MI
Clear Height Before: 14' & 15'
Clear Height After: 26' & 27'
Building SF: N/A
Lift Area SF: 115,200
Cubic Feet Before: 1,700,000
Cubic Feet After: 3,100,000

Raised 115,200 square foot roof area, from 14/15 feet up to 26/27 feet clear, to enable the engine-manufacturing facility to accommodate new and taller equipment required in order to produce a new generation of Chrysler diesel engines, which will meet new and stricter environmental emissions standards. The new production line utilizes machinery and equipment that require additional headroom. The roof raise in this section of the 3,000,000 square foot complex was accomplished while round-the-clock operations continued all around it, and was the key to expanding Chrysler Motors’ production capabilities within its existing facility.
