Volkswagen Assembly Plant Fit-Out

Chattanooga, Tennessee

The Volkswagen Assembly Plant Fit-Out project is the build-out of the first Volkswagen manufacturing plant built in the United States. The structure includes six interconnected buildings spanning over three million square feet.

Manhattan put into place structural and miscellaneous steel, CMU and metal stud walls, pre-manufactured offices, metal wall panels, architectural finishes, assembly cranes, and seven elevators, including the country’s largest single-shaft hydraulic freight elevator. Our team also constructed a 170-foot-tall concrete exhaust stack using a slip-form technique. The design required a continuous pour (six-inch lifts) that lasted six days.

This project is certified LEED® Platinum. At the time, it was the first and only automotive manufacturing plant in the world to receive the Platinum certification.
