NEW YORK, May 31, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Faithful+Gould is pleased to announce it has been selected to provide project management services for the construction of a 795,000-square-foot paint shop facility at the Volvo facility, currently underway in Ridgeville, South Carolina. Volvo broke ground on the facility, its first auto manufacturing plant in North America, in September 2015.
Faithful+Gould will serve as a consultant to The Eisenmann Corporation, which has a turnkey contract to design and build the paint facility. Based out of Germany, Eisenmann develops and builds custom manufacturing, assembly and logistics plants and is a leading global industrial solutions provider for surface finishing, material flow automation, environmental engineering and thermal process technology. Faithful+Gould will serve as Eisenmann's representative for the building scope, providing design coordination and oversight of the contractor, Gray Construction.
"This is a notable win for Faithful+Gould, not only in gaining a new client in Eisenmann, but also getting the opportunity to work on the Volvo site," said Faithful+Gould Program Director, Ted O'Keeffe. "South Carolina has been working hard to attract manufacturers, and this Volvo facility will have a positive economic impact on the state."
Faithful+Gould has extensive sector experience in the automotive industry, previously completing a 500,000-square-foot paint shop renovation and expansion at BMW's facility in Greer, South Carolina. Working with BMW for more than 20 years, the manufacturing and automotive team has produced exceptional work for the client, demonstrating Faithful+Gould's consistent expertise in project delivery. This dedication has enhanced the firm's profile in the automotive sector and led to being awarded another large-scale automotive project.
"It was particularly rewarding to hear that the opportunity was based on a recommendation from one of our long standing clients, BMW," added O'Keefe. "Our team is excited to continue this growth with Eisenmann on this latest venture."
