General Motors Platinum Plant – Storage/Stamping Building

Lansing, Michigan – 1438 Tons

Delta Township is home to the newest General Motors Assembly Plant currently called the Platinum Plant. Douglas Steel fabricated and erected 1,438 tons of structural steel for the Material Storage Building, Scrap House and Blank Receiving Building, providing a total of 265,000 square feet under roof. Due to the quick schedule demanded by General Motors, Douglas Steel sublet a portion of the truss fabrication to Thomas Steel, Inc. of Bellevue, Ohio. Erection progressed so quickly that the crane and crew had to interrupt their operation and wait for the foundations to progress further resuming operation.
