Building Renovation and Expansion
Cincinnati Machine, Inc. relocated its Cincinnati, Ohio, operations to an existing 137,400-sf plant in Hebron, Kentucky. The renovation of the existing building included replacement of the existing floor with 5-foot thick floors and construction of a 45,000-sf, 40-foot clear height building addition.
Operations at the facility include complex composite processes, and the assembly and testing of large machine tools including fixed table vertical machine centers, 3- and 5-axis profilers and gantries, and 5-axis vertical and horizontal machine centers. The processes for manufacturing these tools require the use of 20-ton and 30-ton capacity heavy-industrial material handling systems and Stringer Extrusion Mill for custom parts. Equipment foundation design required vibration isolation for the final machine tool assembly.
In addition, strict temperature and humidity control was required in the entire building.
IMEG provided civil, structural, mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and fire protection engineering design, along with industrial architecture services, for the project.
