Commercial Uniform Company

Project: This project required the conversion of an existing 100,000 square foot computer chip manufacturing plant to a uniform manufacturing plant capable of providing cutting, sewing, warehouse, distribution, and office space for approximately 150 workers.

Challenge: The existing structure had sat abandoned for several years, and much work was needed to bring the space up to current building codes. Due to the change in use, much of the area required demolition and major building systems modifications including electrical, telephone, plumbing and HVAC changes were required. Building ingress and egress areas were modified in the concrete tilt-up structure. Furthermore, as supplier to major airlines and restaurant chains throughout the world, it was critical that company operations continue uninterrupted.

MJK Solution: Working with the owner, specific departments were identified and scheduled move dates established which would provide for continuous operations of this highly active company. MJK focused on those tasks which would facilitate completion of major building systems modifications, allowing the company’s IT department to move in well in advance of other departments. As each department’s move date approached, MJK focused efforts to insure that incoming equipment was set up quickly, to minimize any delays in manufacturing and distribution.
