  • Owner: Schneider Iron & Metal
  • Project Location: Kingsford, MI
  • Architect: Gundlach Champion
  • Project Duration: 5 months
  • Project Completed: November 2013

Gundlach Champion, Inc. (GCI) was selected as the Design-Build contractor to design, construct, and install a new support building, foundations, and shredder line equipment for Schneider Iron & Metal, located in Kingsford, Michigan.

The new building was designed to house Schneider’s Metso 80/104, 60-tons-per-hour, new-generation heavy service damp shredding plant.  This upgraded facility also consists of six material handling conveyors, used to separate non-ferrous material, aluminum, and stainless steel.  Additionally, this state-of-the-art shredder line is powered by a 2,500 HP electric motor. 

In addition to the design-build services, Gundlach Champion, Inc. self-performed the existing equipment demolition, concrete, precast concrete erection, and equipment setting.  The project took 5 months to complete, and was turned over to the owner in the fall of 2013.
