GDI Construction constructed this 127,000 square foot, state-of-the-art manufacturing facility for Brevini Wind USA in Muncie, IN. The heavy-duty manufacturing facility is located approximately 45 minutes Northeast of Indianapolis, Indiana.
This specialized facility now employs 450 people and features the production of main-drive gear boxes for the US Wind Turbine market. Production is now 1000 gear boxes per year.
“The qualification based process utilized by Brevini Wind to select our design-build team was very demanding and required almost six months from start to finish. The construction of our facility includes heavy concrete, steel and electrical components which require years of expertise to ensure quality delivery. While all of the firms shortlisted demonstrated this expertise, GDI became the obvious choice as the selection process closed.Their commitment to customer satisfaction, the highest quality construction and demonstrated value through the design-build process will give the Brevini Company a competative advantage in the U.S. market place as we move toward our 2010 start of production. “
