Nanshan America Advanced Aluminum Technologies (Main Facility)
Nanshan America is the newest integrated aluminum casting and extrusion facility in North America. Built to house Nanshan’s aluminum extrusion and casting operations, the manufacturing facility was developed on 50 acres on the south side of Lafayette, Indiana. A design-build approach was employed to construct the main building, which has a footprint of more than 600,000 square feet.
The building was designed with varying heights to accommodate equipment and operations with the Low Bay area having 25’ clear height and the High Bay totaling 50’ clear head height. The facility also includes 22 x internal docks, 4,000 square foot addition for air compressors, fire pumps and water treatment facilities, 12,000 sq ft, 2 x story maintenance shop, 18,000 sq ft die shop along with a 60,000sq ft pre-engineered metal building used to store scrap aluminum. This complete facility was constructed within 11 months.
