GE Corporate Shared Additive Facility

Project Details

The Center for Additive Technology Advancement (CATA), located near Pittsburgh, PA, is General Electric Company’s (GE) flagship additive manufacturing facility. GE’s diverse products & services range from aircraft engines, power generation, oil & gas production equipment, household appliances, medical imaging, business & consumer financing and industrial products.

Evans was selected to design/build the 125,860 sf facility with 84,750 sf of future expansion. The facility consists of 9” concrete insulated wall panels and a 60-mil mechanically attached TPO membrane roof over two layers of 2.6” insulation. A 20-ton variable volume roof top unit with factory mounted disconnect, roof curb, economizer with VFD, electric reheat, and return air smoke detector were also installed. Additional features include an aluminum storefront system with 1” insulated glazing, liquid nitrogen piping, domestic waste/vent piping PVC and domestic water with Type L Copper.

Combining aspects and design criteria from GE’s other satellite additive locations, Evans played a significant role in working with the CATA team to develop the facility’s layout and logistics, as well as assisting in the design of mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and process piping (liquid nitrogen, argon, chilled water, compressed air) systems to allow CATA maximum flexibility for future plant modifications and equipment expansion.

The facility also includes a 4,000 sf, state-of the-art Lean Laboratory, and a 16,000 sf Class A office with a tiered lecture hall and several team huddle/conference rooms. The full scope of work included design-build services, complete shell building construction, tenant build-out, and a comprehensive site work package.
