Automotive Plant

San Jose Chiapa, Puebla, Mexico

Audi’s new automotive plant — scaled to employ 3,800 workers manufacturing 150,000 cars a year — was designed utilizing sustainability principles, making it a leader in the industry. AKF Mexico, in collaboration with IbZ (Ingenieurbüro Zammit), the well-known German MEP engineering firm, provided full MEP engineering design and construction supervision.

The scope of work included schematic design, design development, and construction documents for electrical, mechanical, plumbing, fire protection, and natural gas and industrial gas systems. AKF remained on call throughout each phase of the project and ensured project schedules were maintained. AKF was also responsible for the successful coordination of MEP and technology systems.

The design’s objective, to provide an environmentally friendly complex by reducing energy consumption and maintenance costs, developed strategies for treating and re-using waste water.
