Mission served as the general contractor for the USA-Houston based operations for OMK Industries, a subsidiary of a Russian based conglomerate. From the beginning, this project was an immediate fast-track schedule.  Design for this project was started only 1-1/2 months before Mission mobilized the site and started the site excavation on the 80+ acre site in April 2012. Project completion was established as December 1, 2012 with NO time for extensions for weather delays.

In order to meet the deadline, Mission led the design criteria by placing the foundation footings, auger piles and erecting the steel frame prior to installing the building foundation, slab, 2 miles of railcar tracks and slitter pits. The multiple slitter pits throughout the building reached 45’ in depth below grade. During the erection of the steel frame, the building was designed and literally built in sections as the final drawings were issued. Precise scheduling required countless man-hours of project coordination meetings between the client, architect, engineers, subcontractors and the Mission team to construct the building into a complete and enclosed structure.

The last of the facility design was completed only (3) months prior to our December deadline. Construction was completed in eight (8) months as required. Mission will be starting Phase II in 2014.
