First Piece of Steel Erected for New Paint Shop at Flint Assembly [Video]

The first piece of structural steel for GM’s new paint shop at its Flint Assembly location was erected Monday morning.

In December 2013, GM announced plans to invest $600 million into various plant projects in Flint, including the new paint shop. Over the next six months, workers will assemble 12,000 pieces of steel using 130,000 structural bolts. In total, 10,000 tons of structural steel will be used in the project. Installation of the steel began just three months after GM and general contractor Gallagher-Kaiser broke ground on the plant located just south of Flint Assembly on the site of the former Flint V-8 engine plant.

When competed in late 2016, the finished plant will have a footprint of 600,000 square feet and 1.3 million square feet of floor space over the three floors of the facility.
