Continental Contitech - Industrial Hose Plant Expansion

Mount Pleasant, IA

Purchased in 1977, the Mount Pleasant based plant currently employs slightly more than 200 workers. Working with SG Construction in a design-build capacity, Klingner provided structural, mechanical, and electrical design services for the 31,750 SF addition. Structural design included foundations and steel framing similar to the existing building. MEP design included (in part) mechanical systems including supply fans and ductwork, unit heaters, two new lighting panels, and layout of general LED lighting and convenience outlets.

The expansion allows for an additional production line to in crease the total floor area and the plant capacity by 20%, enabling Contitech to add 12-14 workers.
