Known for our ability to adapt to complex projects, tight deadlines and unique circumstances, Price Erecting was called to assist MSI General Contractors to build a one-of-a-kind Clean Room in an already existing MGS building.
MGS Manufacturing is a local tooling, molding and engineering company who specializes in impactful, custom solutions. Recently, their work has progressed to the point of needing a Class 8 Clean Room to accommodate the unique needs of their customers. The MGS team prides themselves on being a single source solution for their customers and the addition of the Clean Room would allow them to accept even more unique and specialized projects.
MGS reached out to the team at MSI, a local group of general contractors who have partnered with MGS several times throughout the years. MSI was faced with creating a solution to MGS’ challenging request. They had to consider how to build a massive Class 8 Clean Room into MGS’ existing facilities. To do this, their team had to not only open the roof and walls of their existing building, they had to do so in late fall, when weather in Wisconsin is cold and often unpredictable.
To assist in this ambitious project, MSI reached out to the team at Price Erecting. Known for our ability to adapt to complex projects, tight deadlines and unique circumstances, Price Erecting was called to assist MSI General Contractors to build a one-of-a-kind Clean Room.
“Price Erecting was just an absolutely fantastic subcontractor to work with” – Dan Gonwa, MSI Project Superintendent
One of the more difficult aspects of the project was working with a preexisting building. The roof had to be removed while Price moved in equipment, machinery, cranes, all during working hours. The Price Erecting team didn’t let bad weather stop them either, they worked day and night (often 20 hour days) to assist MGS in the completion of this new clean space.
“There’s not a lot of steel erectors that could handle a project like this,” said John Kutz, MSI Director of Sales and Marketing. “Price Erecting was on top of the list from the get-go, and it worked out really well.”
Another huge consideration with this project was getting a roof on the building before winter, which meant more or less the project must be completed by then. The team worked in September and October only, and found ways to ensure that the exposed areas of the building were not affecting MGS’ manufacturing processes. The MSI and Price Erecting collaboration ensured that the project would be finished on time, with as minimal disruption as possible.
MGS’ new Clean Room is increasing their team’s capabilities, and bringing bigger and more complicated projects to their door. Price Erecting was proud to collaborate with the great folks at MGI to help bring this extraordinary project to life.
