Manufacturing Facility Design: New Dry Mortar Plant

Manufacturing-10When this global supplier of flooring products decided to open their first North American plant, they turned to Nutec to design their unique facility, which centers around a gravity-fed process via a five-level, 110-foot tower.

Manufacturing Facility Design: Vehicle Production Plant

Manufacturing-4How do you bring an American icon to life? Nutec provided complete A/E design to expand manufacturing and assembly space, create a new cafeteria and offices, add a health center, and develop a new museum-style tour center complete with theater and retail shop.

Manufacturing Facility Design: Chiller Testing Facility

Manufacturing-5Once a chiller is manufactured, it needs tested for conformance. Nutec’s relationship with this Fortune 500 firm spans several decades, and this project marked our fourth chiller testing facility collaboration, including two in Pennsylvania and two in Texas.

Manufacturing Facility Design: New Focus Plants

Manufacturing-2When a global manufacturer of earth-moving equipment decided to close an integrated production facility and construct several new focus facilities, Nutec was commissioned to design three new manufacturing facilities on an extremely tight schedule. The end-result is new plants in NC, SC, and MS, ranging is size from 155,000 sq. ft. to 210,000 sq. ft.

Manufacturing Facility Design: Foundry Expansion

Manufacturing-3Because of our background in the primary metals industry, Nutec was commissioned by a regional foundry to design two expansions to house four 10-metric ton coreless furnaces and associated spaces and equipment like melt decks, baghouses, and cranes.

Manufacturing Facility Design: New Electronics Plant

Manufacturing-9A fire early in this Fortune 500 firm’s history caused this electronic component manufacturer to rethink production, and create small focus plants. However, after rethinking their approach, they commissioned Nutec to provide comprehensive A/E services for a new Integrated Manufacturing Facility (IMF) with stamping, plating, and molding processes.

Manufacturing Facility Design: Gravure Printing Expansion

Manufacturing-1Since Nutec’s inception, providing compete architectural and engineering solutions for the printing industry has been an area of focus. This project entailed a major expansion for a Fortune 500 company to house new gravure presses and specialized solvent recovery systems. Nutec also acted as design-builder on this project.

Manufacturing Facility Design: Magazine Printing Plant

Manufacturing-8This global client originally commissioned Nutec to develop cost models for five expansion alternatives, and we were eventually retained to design a new 250,000 sq. ft. expansion to house presses, pre-press, binding, and a 50,000 sq. ft. office building in support of a new contract to print 17 million monthly copies of one of America’s most popular magazines.

Manufacturing Facility Design: Newspaper Printing Plant

Manufacturing-7In the digital era, newspaper printing facilities aren’t being constructed like they were in the past; however, Nutec’s engineering group was asked to participate in an interesting new project that entailed construction of a new building adjacent to the editorial offices in an urban setting. The process and mechanical system are high profile as the pressroom is visible to passersby via large, multi-story windows.
