Volvo is building a $500 million car plant in Berkeley County with plans to produce 100,000 cars a year. Volvo’s site is approximately 1600 acres and will include six main buildings that total 1.7 millon square-feet.
Site designs include 1500 employee parking spaces with planned expansions and a campus-wide utility distribution network. A two-mile long vehicle test track loop is also part of the site design.
The project involved coordination with international end-user designers, multiple design-build contractors, and with county and state economic development funded infrastructure design and construction. ADC provided the landscape architecture, civil engineering design, structural engineering designs for the foundation and Seismic and Wind Lateral Force Resisting System.
