GM/Suzuki Joint Venture
CAMI Automotive is the largest Canadian/Japanese Joint Venture automotive plant in Canada. HH Angus provided project management and served as prime consultant for the design of the buildings and building services, site services, storm water management system, waste water treatment facilities, and a new rail spur. HH Angus engineers worked closely with the Construction Managers in scheduling and organizing the project.
The main building is one kilometre long and approximately 230,000 m2 in area. Essentially, four separate automobile production plants are located under one roof: stamping, welding, painting and final assembly. Each plant has its own incoming electrical service and ventilation system. A rail spur serves a 25-acre paved shipping compound.
An independently-situated Central Plant provides heating and process steam, compressed air, and reverse osmosis-treated processed water. The steam plant includes four boilers.
