Colfor Manufacturing Expansion
American Axle Manufacturing | Malvern , Ohio
Osborn Engineering provided architectural and engineering services for American Axle-Colfor Manufacturing’s 2-story addition with steel framing and exterior curtainwall system. Osborn also provided Enhanced Construction Administration/Owner’s Representative for this project. Initially, these services provided the activities required to expedite the plan completion, review and permit process. Osborn had an individual on-site during the majority of construction activities to provide oversight and documentation of the construction and various milestone activities.
The existing 6,000 SF office space on the first floor was renovated and converted to a large meeting area. Office space currently located in the area was relocated to the new 3,000 SF addition. The second floor of the existing office space remained as-is with minor updates to finishes including painting, new ceiling tiles, and new flooring. A new HVAC system was designed for both the existing office space and new addition and plumbing was provided for the new toilet room located on the first floor. New lighting was designed for both the existing office space and addition. Telephone and data were provided in the new addition and modified in the existing office space. The project also included a new exit stair and elevator.
