Global engineered materials supplier Cytec Industries contacted PCL Construction Services, Inc. during the preconstruction phase of an expansion to their aerospace materials production facility in Winona, Minnesota. They subsequently awarded the construction phase to PCL. Cytec’s decision to choose PCL was driven by early constructability and design recommendations from the PCL team, which also provided the most cost-effective solution to the project.
This 18,000-square-foot expansion involved the renovation of existing manufacturing space for new value-added process manufacturing lines, and a new regenerative thermal oxidizer. The renovated facility, housing four new production lines, involved extensive structural building modifications within a 24/7 operating chemical plant. The work was successfully completed within a tight production start-up schedule and under strict process safety guidelines.
