This growing injection molding company elected to work with SourceGroup because of our value engineering insights and the integrity they felt we brought to the bidding and design development process. Over the course of three months SourceGroup worked with the owner to redesign various architectural, structural, mechanical and electrical systems that had been over-engineered, resulting in the project coming in over budget.
One of the project requirements was to upgrade the building’s electrical service from a 240 high-leg delta to a 480-volt service. A change that would substantially reduce energy bills and make it possible to incorporate more cost-effective electrical presses that would decrease long-term operating and maintenance costs. SourceGroup worked closely with the electrical utility to complete the upgrade without interrupting electrical service to the building – making it possible for MMI to keep the production line fully functional.
