Structure Tone Southwest was selected to complete preconstruction and construction services for K&N Filters in order to achieve their goal of having a centrally located industrial facility in the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex. K&N Filter’s new manufacturing facility consists of 525,000sf separated into three main areas: racking, office, and manufacturing.
The first area is a 200,500sf racking area, which includes high-bay storage, packing operations, and office space for their third-party logistics partner. The second houses 104,500sf of corporate office space, consisting of private offices, workstations, training rooms, and a future mezzanine level to account for future growth and additional racking. The third area is a large manufacturing facility spanning over 220,000sf. This space is a highly MEP-intensive area with significant infrastructure supporting the manufacturing equipment. Structure Tone Southwest installed a 150KW generator, two 1,550-gallon air compressors, a 20-ton air cooled chiller, conveyors, carousals, a Urethane delivery system, dust collection system, natural gas, and a pick module.
Structure Tone Southwest was able to coordinate with the base building contractor and turn over each phase of the project as the owner needed. During the preconstruction phase of the project, Structure Tone Southwest worked with the client and achieved significant cost savings of over $540,000
Due to the accelerated project schedule, the project team worked six days a week, 10 hours a day in order to turn over each phase of the building on time. Safety was a major priority on this project. Due to our mandatory orientation for all subcontractors, weekly safety meetings, and a quarterly safety stand down, we reached over 125,000 man-hours with zero incidents.
