Caterpillar – Oxford

Project Overview

JESCO Design / Build team completed the original design and construction of the 180,000 square feet High Performance Extrusions Plant in July of 1998, for Caterpillar. During a tornado in February 2008, the facility was completely destroyed. Because this facility is critical to the production of vital parts shipped around the world, JESCO’s Design/Build team worked closely with the Owner and their Production Team to fast-track the reconstruction process. The primary operations resumed in July 2008 and circumvented major issues with parts production and Owner Customer Satisfaction. Structure heights are 30 feet in most areas and bay size is fifty feet by fifty feet.

Reconstruction of the office facilities was released later and completed in October 2008. Majority of the work was self-performed by several of JESCO’s divisions including foundations, pits, tilt panels, metal wall systems, steel fabrication / erection and mechanical- electrical systems. JESCO was again asked to return in 2010 after another weather related occurrence to make timely repairs/upgrades and an office expansion.
