Best Practices for Manufacturing Construction

Interstate brands corporation manufacturing facility

Manufacturing Construction projects are notoriously complex. They require managing complicated processes and an incredible amount of information and resources. At McCownGordon Construction, our preconstruction and preliminary engineering abilities are just a portion of why we excel in manufacturing design-build in Kansas City and across Texas, Kansas, Missouri, Arkansas and Tennessee.

“The complexity of the construction, design and engineering for manufacturing construction projects makes it a lot more challenging,” said McCownGordon’s Jamie Bailey, director of client strategy for our manufacturing business unit. “There are more pieces to the puzzle.”

A unique customer experience for turnkey manufacturing

Requirements for manufacturing and distribution facilities include food grade cleanability requirements, upgrading operations in active environments, coordinating utility run routing and complex equipment clearances and tie-ins, to name just a few. 

It’s not just our ability to understand and integrate all the different components of a project, from design to startup, that makes us the ideal partner for your successful manufacturing construction project, it’s the client experience we provide. 

We measure client experience through net promoter score surveys, and with quality and safety programs. We gain a well-rounded approach and understanding of how we’re doing on the project as well as how we’re doing with the actual customer. McCownGordon remains committed to providing personal experiences and strong relationships in addition to top tier quality contracting work.

Trusted turnkey project solutions

Wherever you are in your manufacturing construction journey, it’s the right time to bring us in. We can  assist in site selection, perform engineering studies, and provide other preconstruction basics for a brand new green field site, or for renovations to a manufacturing facility in an existing structure. Partnering with McCownGordon lets us help you turnkey nearly any manufacturing facility. 

We perform facility condition assessments on any existing facility, especially those with aging infrastructure. We analyze the core and shell of the building and all existing utilities. We also can perform studies on the manufacturing line itself to determine whether equipment needs to be replaced. When needed, we are able to demo the entire existing line to add new equipment.

Our expertise in occupied jobsites translates into smoothly working with extensions to existing operations in manufacturing lines. These intricate projects require us to control the construction environment while maintaining a safe and operable working environment for the manufacturing line. 

McCownGordon Construction delivers unmatched construction expertise for these turnkey projects. We define the construction costs early in the process of facility development, helping customers save time and money. This early cost and schedule certainty makes a huge overall difference. Our expertise added to our advanced technology capabilities, like laser scanning and virtual reality, and our best-in-class customer experience, make no better partner for your manufacturing construction project.
