OBG’s Focus on Solutions
Focus on the Client’s Aggressive Schedule Requirements: OBG led the fast-track conversion of a 200,000-square-foot former gas turbine manufacturing facility to a state-of-the art, R&D, manufacturing, and business-unit headquarters. This conversion, in support of the client’s aggressive product launch schedule, was accomplished in just 24 months.
OBG designed the space using building information modeling (BIM) and 3-D modeling of manufacturing cells that allowed visualization of process equipment and building interaction to optimize material movements and process flow. Modular systems were used to provide flexible areas that could be easily modified to adapt to changes in the process configuration. OBG took advantage of the 80-foot building height that was originally needed to accommodate the gas turbine process. Through the creative use of this height, the OBG team constructed new utility and office spaces above the manufacturing floor.
