BASF – Lithium Ion Battery Plant

Elyria, Ohio – 1,160 Tons

BASF was racing to get their product to market before the competition. Government funding was at stake. Schedule for completion of the steel package – all galvanized steel – was not negotiable. Equipment deliveries drove steel completion.  Numerous platforms and stairs providing access to the equipment were designed  after the main building and had to be integrated into the main structure while it was being fabricated.

Douglas Steel Fabricating Corporation took a proactive approach, meeting on site with the design team to provide innovative framing and connection solutions and assist with scheduling. Our in-house engineering and fabrication capabilities enabled us to stage our work and intensively manage the schedule, reacting to design changes on the fly and completing the project two weeks ahead of schedule.
