Honda Paint Shop Expansion
Honda Canada Inc. is upgrading and expanding its Honda Plant 1 Paint Shop facilities in order to build new models of the Civic and the CR-V. This new paint shop will help the company cut greenhouse gas emissions from its paint processes by 44 per cent. This expansion will be a welcomed addition to the company’s 45-acre Alliston, Ontario facility, which includes two vehicle production plants, an engine plant and a stamping forming plant.
Walters is responsible for the engineering, detailing, fabrication, painting, and erection of 1900 MT of structural steel. This involves 159 trusses ranging from 40’ to 60’. Steel erection commenced the last week of March 2017 and is scheduled to finish before Fall 2017.
Facts & Figures
- There are 159 trusses on this project
- 1900 MT of steel
- All steel to be painted
Our biggest challenge on this project is time. Walters was awarded the project in late December 2016 and was on site by March 2017, which made for a very tight detailing and fabrication schedule. With the late award, getting material ordered to catch early rolling dates was a challenge.
