NV5 Completes Work on Toyota Engineering and Manufacturing Facilities
YORK, MI NV5 Global, Inc. announces that it has completed work on two engineering and manufacturing testing facilities for Toyota Motors in York, Michigan, and Georgetown, Kentucky. NV5 provided mechanical, electrical, plumbing, fire protection and telecommunication (MEP/FP/T) engineering services and energy efficiency services on two buildings totaling 440,000 square feet including over 60,000 square feet of laboratory space.
The two facilities have been designed as net zero buildings which include photovoltaic and geothermal systems. Toyota will utilize these two state of the art facilities to develop future models of cars and trucks.
NV5 Chairman and CEO, Dickerson Wright, PE, said, "We are proud that our energy technology vertical has expanded to a point where we can serve large clients like Toyota that require MEP services all over the United States. Our range of capabilities across all of our verticals has also expanded, which means we can provide our clients with many different services at every stage of a project's lifecycle. NV5 is now ranked 12th on Building Design and Construction Magazine's list of top Engineering and Architecture Firms, and with the acquisition of JBA and RDK this year, we rank in the top 10 of the largest MEP firms in the country."
NV5 Project Manager Pat Murphy said, "The Kentucky plant in particular is Toyota's largest factory in the world. 8,200 employees work there and several different models are manufactured in the facility. It was an honor for us to help the Toyota team work toward their long-term goals by adding the new engineering lab building, which will allow their engineers to develop the next generation in car technology."
Kevin McNamara, NV5 Project Manager for the York, Michigan site, said, "It was important to Toyota's leadership team for these two buildings to become sustainable regional role models for large-scale office buildings in the United States. We achieved this by extensively researching similar buildings, benchmarking their sustainability, and setting clear metrics that our design would meet and exceed."
