TTL has been a trusted provider of civil engineering services for Nissan’s Smyrna plant since 1995. The Integrated Logistics Center (ILC) is located on Nissan’s Smyrna campus and is more than 1.5 million square feet in size. The building is single story with tilt-up concrete walls, surrounded by paved asphalt parking and drive areas. The ILC serves as an immediate space for suppliers and is used for multiple purposes supporting operations including inbound production parts and outbound returnable containers. The project created more than 1,000 supplier jobs for the campus.
TTL provided geotechnical engineering services and performed construction materials testing and special inspections. Challenges at the site included numerous sinkholes and providing testing during pouring of 40,000 – 50,000 square feet of concrete slabs per day on an accelerated schedule.
