GBA provided a fast-track approach for the design and construction of Johnson Control’s new seat manufacturing plant. In order to have the facility up and running quickly for the client, the entire project was designed and built within nine months. The facility is located on a 25.5-acre site in Horizons Industrial Park and the building received LEED Silver certification.
The state-of-the-art facility manufactures seats for the Chevrolet Malibu produced at the General Motors Fairfax Assembly Plant in Kansas City, Kansas, as well as for the Ford F-150 produced at Ford Motor Company’s Assembly Plant in Claycomo, Missouri.
