The 16,800 square foot addition was a challenge for all parties involved due to the tight scheduling restraints. Sea Ray Boats partnered with the George W. Reagan Company in order to continue production during the construction process. The annual two week plant shut down was the single opportunity to reconfigure and relocate existing assembly lines, as well as, placing the re-engineered production lines into operation for the returning workforce in order to avoid “plant down time.” The existing slab on grade was utilized to reduce cost, but the new expansion required heavy foundations which were saw cut, excavated, and poured in place while the Owner utilized the slab. Varco-Pruden manufactured the pre-engineered building with the Reagan Company self-performing the building erection in order to meet the Owner’s schedule.
