The 10,800m2 extension to ASB International’s existing operational facility at Ambernath – one of the most modern and largest among PET processing machine manufacturers in the world – includes a major machinery and quality assurance laboratory plus utilities and office space.
We provided industrial design expertise ranging from utilities, architecture, civil, structural, electrical and mechanical to piping, HVAC, instrumentation and fire protection. We supported procurement and selection of necessary equipment for building construction and provided construction supervision.
Key challenges included designing a vibration free building structure to ensure that moulds manufactured in the computer numerical control machines are delivered within a finishing accuracy of 15 microns.
The project addressed the Indian packaging industry’s growing demand for PET bottles to satisfy customer preferences for fully recyclable materials.
