No delays, no quality issues, and got the job done on time and under budget.
Graphic Packaging adopted a Sustainability Program in 2008 that included the sustainability of hot-dip galvanized coatings, which was critical for a project this size. Weiland Construction was chosen to be the Construction Manager due to the ability to manage the entire process from site management, engineering, building design, and erection. Selection was also due to successful completion of three new mills for Graphics Packaging in years prior. Builders Iron and the galvanizer worked closely to process a load of steel per day and deliver to the jobsite on time. No delays, no quality issues, and got the job done on time and under budget.
