How Was H.S. Williams the Best Construction Company for the Job?

  • Utility Trailer chose Southwest Virginia for their Eastern U.S. manufacturing facility, and sought an experienced, preferred contractor.
  • With their knowledge of such building projects, H.S. Williams designed the plant to meet not only the client’s immediate needs, but also to facilitate future expansion.
  • Design and construction were catered to the facility’s linear production process that is reliant on an extensive network of cranes and material handling systems.
  • Implementation of a full perimeter wall light band allows natural light into the building, while interior white paint further increases lighting levels and promotes quality control.
  • The project was delivered on time and on budget.

Construction Challenges

  • Development of the 112-acre property required extensive excavation and wetlands mitigation. Thanks to the management of H.S. Williams, all stringent federal standards were met.
  • When a tornado hit the plant, H.S. Williams Company secured the building and made modifications, allowing it to get up and running the very next week.
  • During the following months, H.S. Williams rebuilt the facility to pre-tornado conditions – all while production continued inside.
