Evans General Contractors was retained to construct a new logistics center at the BMW Assembly Facility in Spartanburg, South Carolina. The expansion project, which consisted of two phases, was necessary in order to keep pace with increased production within that particular manufacturing plant. BMW also needed a solution to enable easy transport of materials between the site’s logistics center and the assembly plant.
Phase one included a 144,000 SF logistic center expansion, complete with logistical support offices and 12 new dock positions. The second phase involved a 12,800 SF expansion of the existing logistics center, four new dock positions, an elevated building connector between the assembly plant and the logistics facility, and four large freight elevators for transferring materials between the logistics center and assembly facility.
