Galvanizing Plant

Corbec Inc.

Size: 1,000,000 SF | Value: $40 Million | Location: Hamilton, ON

Architecture, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Structural Engineering

Corbec Inc has chosen Hamilton’s Red Hill Business Park as the site of their fourth Canadian plant. The industrial space will house a fully automated galvanizing system, 12 FT deep equipment pits, as well as an office, cafeteria and washroom facilities for the 100 people the plant expects to employ. In collaboration with construction manager Cooper Construction, WalterFedy is providing architecture, structural, mechanical, and electrical engineering services for the project.

 

Since the equipment is entirely automated, designers must meet a multitude of specific criteria to ensure functionality. There are extreme tolerance requirements for the automated conveyance system – less than an inch. Any variances can throw off the system.

 

During design, key design elements included hydro servicing, working on a greenfield, and designing the building shell to support the process design that occurred simultaneously.
