Ford’s Oakville Assembly Complex - New Fuel Cell Building

Milman & Associates was retained by H.H. Angus & Associates Limited to design a new 15,000 ft² Fuel Cell building at Ford’s Oakville Assembly Complex. The purpose of this new facility was to recycle all fumes from the paint shop into fuel/energy as part of Ford’s innovative conservation-driven program, Fumes-to-Fuel. We designed and supervised the construction of the shell of the industrial building, all foundations and retaining walls, as well as that of the building’s intermediate platforms that were completely packed with heavy process equipment and tanks. We also designed a link connecting the second floor of the existing paint shop to the new fuel cell building.
