Manitowoc Crane Campus Upgrade
Manitowoc Crane Company expanded its Manitowoc facilities to meet demands for growth and capacity.GRAEF provided planning, architectural, structural, site/civil and MEP engineering services for the $25 million renovation and modernization projects which were completed in multiple phases.
The Manitowoc campus expansion included numerous renovations and additions. A new 4,000 square foot employee support area with lunchroom, locker rooms, and tool room was added to better accommodate the growing staff at this site. The assembly addition was designed to build a new ultra large crawler crane which has a capacity of over 1 million pounds and has a 700 foot boom. GRAEF designed two major machine foundations as part of the project; a boring bar foundation and a gantry boring bar foundation. The plate processing addition is 14,000 sq. ft. and accommodates a blast booth for steel FAB operations. The boom weld addition is 23,900 sq. ft. and gives added capacity for both boom welding operations for new machining. GRAEF designed two large machine foundations for this building.
Designs incorporated direct fired make-up air units for the heating season and summer ventilation fans for the cooling/ventilating season which are controlled together to ensure adequate building pressure. All new additions and renovations are being designed/upgraded with controls to tie into the existing central building automation system. Electrical work included designing the site looped power distribution system, equipment power, and interior lighting for building additions. A power load study was conducted to determine upgrade requirements for the 13.2 KV primary power loop.
