Nordson was able to lower their capital expenditures by converting an existing retail building into a manufacturing plant. Osborn Engineering used creative structural design to adapt this building to support the Nordson production process. Project highlights include:
  • Full floor slab replacement with new tranches and puts to support heavy industrial loads
  • Equipment foundations for 150+ pieces of equipment weighing up to 220 kips
  • Structural steel and foundations for five new 15-ton overhead bridge cranes
  • Penthouse added for drop tower and 15-ton crane
