ThyssenKrupp Steel USA commissioned VIB in November 2009 to coordinate the construction of a new bay for the new hot-dip galvanising production lines 2 and 4 as part of the construction of a new plant in Mount Vernon, Alabama, U.S.A.
With a surface area of around 22,000 m², converted space of approx. 900,000 m3, approx. 11,000 metric tonnes of erected steel and an attached facade of some 30,000 m², the new hall complex cost approx. USD 49 million.
The services rendered by VIB were essentially directed at the coordination of all works and contractors for the erection of the hall stated, whereby particular emphasis was put on compliance with the very strict deadlines and the tight budget.
In this regard, the daily site construction meetings were conducted by VIB, thus ensuring the controlling and coordination of all the works.
The completion deadlines specified at the commencement of the services provided by VIB were observed despite considerable difficulties and the hall complex was made available on time for the plant construction firms to carry out their installation and erection work.
