Cummins Turbo Technologies is the industry leader in diesel engine technology and the world’s largest and most successful manufacturer of turbochargers and diesel engines. Evans was contracted to build their two phase manufacturing facility in Ladson, South Carolina.

Phase I created 123,000 SF of manufacturing space and 30,000 SF of administrative space to be used for the production of contemporary types of federally-mandated low emission turbo systems. The building is composed of a conventional structural steel frame with insulated precast concrete wall panels and a mechanically fastened TPO roofing system. Six test cells used for the beta testing of future designs as well as a central energy plant using air and power generation for process lines were also part of the facility. The entire manufacturing area is air-conditioned and illuminated to 40 FTC. Evans scope of work included all site work, building construction, tenant build-out and other improvements in addition to all mechanical process installation.

Phase II streamlined and increased turbocharger system production by combining the original Cummins plant with the Palmetto Plant (completed by EGC). The one-story 83,250 SF expansion included a mezzanine level and was fully air-conditioned. The manufacturing area was constructed with a Euclid light reflective dry shake for the floor and encompasses 72,000 SF. The remaining 11,250 SF created additional administrative space for Cummins support engineers. Evans provided design/build services for the project and worked hand-in-hand with Cummins regarding modifications and tie-ins with Phase I. Site work, landscaping and uplift were also included in Evans scope of work.
