Cummins Inc., a global power leader, is a corporation of complementary business units that design, manufacture, distribute, and service engines and related technologies. Headquartered in Columbus, Indiana, Cummins serves customers in approximately 190 countries and territories through a network of more than 500 company-owned and independent distributors and more than 5,200 dealer locations.
Project Solutions Group and Cummins relationship began in 2009. PSG has performed project and construction management services for Cummins projects ranging from office space to multi-million dollar industrial facilities in Asia, Europe, South America, and North America.
Cummins determined that its future corporate growth in the oil and gas equipment market required expansion. After much research, they elected to construct a new assembly plant in Houston, Texas, a major hub for oil and gas business and engineering.
Cummins selected PSG to manage the construction of its new 67,500 square foot plant facility, which included new equipment test cells and multiple overhead cranes. After collaborating with Cummins and their real estate broker, PSG began the qualification, bidding, and selection of a local developer and contractor.
PSG coordinated the project team’s documentation and management of project goals and objectives, budgets, plans and schedules, and design development phases. Additionally, PSG developed the forms used for budget management tracking and the construction agreement used by Cummins for the project.
The major challenge of the Houston plant project was the fast-track design and construction required in order to open the facility on schedule. PSG delivered a plant on time and ready for operation.
