Hylwa awarded third Design-Build project for growing Fairfield County-based metal parts manufacturer

June 5th, 2017

Hylwa has been retained to provide design-build services for improvements to the infrastructure of one of the Northeast’s leading steel manufacturers in support of the company increasing its workload and securing larger sized projects. Work includes expanding the client’s existing Shelton, CT facility with an additional 30,000 SF of manufacturing, 10,000 SF of exterior canopies, storage and staging areas and 3,000 SF of new office space. Plans include multiple bridge cranes with extensions from the existing facility to accommodate the simultaneous operation of all cranes. It will be important to ensure that there is no interference with on-going operations during construction.

Anticipating continued growth, this phase incorporates site preparations for a future 40,000 SF expansion of manufacturing operations and an exterior testing area for new prototypes. 

Conscientious planning and exceeding expectations have been the proverbial ‘grease on the wheels’ of this long-standing relationship between Hylwa and the client. Their collaboration began in 1998, when Hylwa was hired to renovate their plant in Stratford, CT. 

Being prepared allows contractor and client to hit the ground running when the next phase of a project is greenlit.  This is an area where the team at Hylwa excels, as they place a high priority in understanding their client’s needs present and future.  As a design-build contractor, Hylwa oversees projects from start to finish, with full-ownership of the planning, design and construction phase. Hylwa takes tremendous pride in delivering projects as promised – on time and within budget.

“Every firm promises to get it done on time and under budget. It’s more than just a hollow cliché to our team. The best measure of success is when a client picks up the phone and calls you back for the next job. This is our third project with this client – we have been supporting their efforts to reinvest in their facilities and further differentiate themselves from the competition,” describes Kenneth Hylwa, president.
