For Immediate Release:

Ideal Contracting Awarded First Major Toyota Project

Detroit, October 3, 2016 Toyota awarded Ideal Contracting a contract for the Powertrain Expansion Phase 2 on February 5, 2016. As part of the year-long project, Ideal Contracting will construct 112,800 sq ft building addition for added chassis and engine dynamometer operations. Also included is the expansion of existing parking lots to add 223 vehicle spaces, along with urban reforestation and stormwater management. Added scope will include the installation of a substation, capable of generating power to the entire facility solely on natural gas.  The project will take place at the Toyota Technical Center, located at 1555 Woodridge Ave in Ann Arbor, Michigan, on 71.59 acres in Ann Arbor Township, in Washtenaw County.

Ideal Contracting broke ground in early July of this year on the renovation project with many environmental challenges, along with an aggressive construction schedule. “We at Ideal are extremely excited for this opportunity,” explains Steve Sinn, Director from Ideal Contracting. “To take a project of this magnitude from the drawing board to completion will allow us to showcase our abilities as a company. It is critical for us to perform well.”

Ideal Contracting and Barton Malow have been and are currently engaged in the Pre-Construction process. This requires all project team members to participate in the project planning, design, procurement, fabrication, and implementation of all aspects of the project, working in concert with the owner Toyota (TEMA), architect and engineer IBI Group.

Ideal Contracting celebrates a reputation of delivering projects safely, on time and within budget, leading to negotiations of repeat business with clients. Ideal Contracting incorporates nonstop collaboration throughout every project delivery approach, early and detailed subcontractor participation, and BIM interface from early design to fabrication process. Ideal Contracting looks at this opportunity as a chance to develop their business relationship with Toyota and expand our portfolio within the automotive sector.
