Project Overview: Using technology developed for the aerospace industry, this high-tech company manufactures pyrotechnic initiators for the automotive industry. The project included construction of facilities for the blending and drying of explosive powders and a manufacturing facility for assembly of the devices. Each "hardened" building was designed to withstand accidental explosions with concrete walls up to 20 inches thick. The Albert Group evaluated the client's program and was able to redesign the site plan to allow for expansion of two additional buildings on the same parcel of land. Budget development, selection and coordination of consultants, contract document review, contract negotiations, scheduling, construction management, and cost/quality control measures were all included in the scope of services provided.
