Highlights

  • Created one of the most complex, precise, graphically driven BIM models to-date in SSOE history
  • As requested, SSOE introduced new efficiencies to Goodyear
  • Outstanding three-way collaboration between SSOE, the contractor, and Goodyear
  • Received consistently excellent team feedback from Goodyear
1 million SF
San Luis Potosí, Mexico

SSOE’s approach expedited decision making and helped Goodyear streamline a design process that would typically extend throughout the entire construction phase.

In collaboration with Goodyear engineers and our construction partner, SSOE completed a highly integrated utilities and process installation design for a 1 million SF tire manufacturing facility in San Luis Potosí, Mexico. This is Goodyear’s first new manufacturing facility in the America’s in 25 years and will produce approximately 6 million premium tires will be produced at the facility annually.

Goodyear selected SSOE for its breadth of engineering services and advanced design delivery methodologies. For example, SSOE maximized use of advanced software tools (Bluebeam, Navisworks) for highly efficient, issue-focused design reviews. SSOE’s approach expedited decision making and helped Goodyear streamline a design process that would typically extend throughout the entire construction phase.

SSOE worked with Goodyear’s design engineers to introduce an alternative design approach, establishing a dynamic three-way SSOE-Goodyear-contractor partnership and adding value to this highly successful project.

As a result of our advanced engineering design services, SSOE was also asked to provide piping fabrication spool drawings for a major equipment set to assist the contractor with overall timing and installation.
