CCC scope of services included one 3-bay addition with three truck docks and access ramp, one 3-bay addition as a warehouse, one single-bay truck dock addition and access ramp, 10,000 square feet of exterior storage pad for rack storage, and 150-foot trainwell extension. Bay work included all electrical, above and below ground mechanical, fire suppression, siding, steel, roofing, concrete and painting. Ten subcontractors were used on the project.

The hardest part of the project was the trainwell extension which had to be completed and inspected in six days with work performed during the Christmas shutdown. This involved removing, demoing and installing an extension to the trainwell, so two addition train cars could fit in it. The crew worked 24/7 to complete the project on time, also emergency work caused by unknown conditions due to an architectural error/omission had to be dealt with. The project was completed ahead of schedule with a day to spare.

The entire project took six months to complete and added 30,500 square feet of additional warehouse space to the plant.

CCC provided all construction management, bonding, materials, equipment and labor for the entire scope of work on this $12.5 million project. Over 27,000 man-hour were logged on the job in 13 months with 6,000 of them self-performed by CCC

As Ford Motor Company grows and expands its North American operations, they had the need for a building extension for their truck body shop at the Kansas City Assembly Plant (KCAP) in Kansas City, Missouri. CCC was contracted by Ford as the prime general contractor for this 142,500-square-foot, new construction project. The scope of work included demolition, relocations, grading and drainage, concrete pad work, ramps, retaining walls, site utilities, guard protection, structural steel signage, doors and equipment, and MEP systems.

Kansas City Assembly Plant (KCAP) in Claycomo, Missouri is one of Ford’s largest and most technologically advanced manufacturing facility. It currently produces America’s number one selling vehicle, the F-150 pickup, and the Transit commercial van.

In order for Ford to meet demand for their new Transit van, 1,200 workers were going to be hired and a second shift created. To accommodate the workers, exterior modifications and an new employee parking lot needed to be constructed. Ford contracted CCC as the general contractor for the project.

The project consisted of exterior modifications to the KCAP administrative building, as well as new flagpoles, signage, landscaping and vehicle displays. Also included was renovating a storage lot into an employee parking lot with a new pedestrian bridge for employee access to the plant, installing new fencing and striping, creating new clear vision track, and repainting existing water tower. CCC used nine subcontractors for the project.

Originally the pedestrian bridge was only called to have an accelerated schedule. Once CCC begin the project, Ford requested all the work be accelerated due to plant needs. CCC was able to accelerate all the work, and incorporate multiple changes during the project including new lighting and widening the highway in front of the plant.
