CURT International Construction Event
PM Group provided architecture and engineering design services for Japanese automotive company Hirotec’s latest development in Geiselhöring, Baveria, Germany.
The new €70m manufacturing complex will supply parts for BMW’s plant in Dingolfing, Germany. The 16,800 sq.m. plant will accommodate a press shop and manufacturing site for vehicle parts.
The facility will incorporate a fully automated assembly line serviced by 120 robots, along with a shipping area, offices and auxiliary space. PM Group services included feasibility study, basic and concept design and detailed design.
The project was delivered in close partnership with Takenaka, the Japanese General Contractor responsible for the construction phase for Hirotec. PM Group’s involvement began in November 2019 and was completed in October 2020. Construction commenced in Spring 2020 and completion is due in 2021.
The crucial design phase was executed during the extremely challenging time of the COVID-19 pandemic. The entire design team overcame significant challenges to deliver the design project remotely, in close collaboration with multinational project partners working in different European and Japanese time zones. The designs, which were produced in Poland, were approved by our local German partner to meet German HOAI Architecture and Engineering Standards.
