Plant Additions

HH Angus has served as the Prime Consultant for a variety of automotive plant additions and renovations for General Motors. These are three of many projects for this valued client.

C/K* Truck Plant

HH Angus coordinated the 1,800,000 ft2 addition to both the building and building services for the new modular paint shop, body shop, paint oven enclosure and elpo phosphate process.

This project included the installation of three 633-ton chillers and one 250-ton chiller for building and process chilled water loads.

* C/K: C indicates 2-wheel drive trucks and K refers to 4-wheel drive.

GMT 800 Oshawa Truck Plant

This was a 300,000 ft2 addition to the existing C/K Truck Plant in Oshawa. Our project scope included coordinating architectural and structural design, mechanical/electrical design, and contract administration. The building is a 35 foot high, single-storey structure with insulated metal siding and 42,000 ft2 mezzanines with washrooms and one mezzanine for the welder water system. The project included a new 8,000 ft2 room and a quality measurement laboratory. The project included electrical bus duct distribution to process loads, as well as a quadruple-ended paralleled welding distribution system for welding robots.

Renovations to C/K Truck Plant

This project consisted of a four-bay addition with four levels to the existing paint shop facility at the Oshawa Truck Plant to house a new primer surfacer spray booth, accumulator conveyor, prep booth, freight elevator, storage, clean room and all associated building services.
