SPX Transformer Solutions saw an opportunity to capture market share by expanding manufacturing capacity at their Waukesha Electric Systems facility. That called for an investment of $70 million, while government funding offset the total by $25 million. Consolidated Construction served as the Owner’s Representative on this project.
The expansion increased the size of the facility by 50%, and extended the company’s ability to manufacture large, high-voltage power transformers used by electric utilities, independent power producers, and independent transmission operators.
The project is comprised of many unique features, including an 18,000 SF shielded room, 110’ clear ceiling heights, seven new overhead cranes (including one rated at 500 tons) and extensive new process equipment.
