ESI provided preconstruction, value analysis, construction management, and general contracting services. ESI’s concrete division self-performed all of the concrete work, including slab on grade, and slab on deck work. The site work consisted of light and heavy-duty concrete paving.
ESI was the design-builder for a new 388,000 square-foot manufacturing facility and an attached two-story, 22,000 square-foot office building. The Autovol Nampa Industrial Building is the first of its kind in the state of Idaho. The innovative project uses robotics to manufacture automated volumetric construction housing units for affordable housing projects.
The scope of work included a design to accommodate a manufacturing facility that utilizes a sophisticated robotics fabrication process and administrative spaces. Construction included a concrete slab-on-grade with steel frame and steel bar joists roof framing, and exterior walls that are finished primarily with pre-finished metal siding except the office portion is primarily exterior insulation and finish system with clear anodized aluminum storefront assemblies. The manufacturing portion of the building has a volume of approximately 15,506,700 cubic feet.
