ORIZON AEROSTRUCTURES, Chanute, KS
Orizon Aerostructures required renovations to a 72,250 square-foot complex-subassembly facility and 102,760 square feet of new construction for a processing facility.
To have the two facilities fully functional for spring production timelines, Koehn took a proactive approach. Koehn’s plans accounted for tight deadlines, extensive overtime and unpredictable weather conditions. Solutions included pre-engineered metal buildings, spaces for parts production and inspection, a full on-site water treatment plant and signature architectural finishes. Throughout the build, Koehn Construction offered strategic pre-planning to deliver project efficiencies on an industrial scale.
“Koehn Construction came with a great recommendation from the city foreman. I asked, ‘If you could pick anybody, who would you pick?’ He said, ‘Koehn.’” / Chip Newell Director of Infrastructure, Orizon Aerostructures
