CertainTeed Gypsum Wallboard Facility

The CertainTeed Gypsum Wallboard Facility, located in Person County, consisted of two phases and a 100-acre construction site.

Summit monitored 300,000 cubic yards of undercut, 750,000 cubic yards of cut to fill, 75,000 cubic yards of rock removal and 13,000 linear feet of storm drain installation. Our geotechnical engineers provided recommendations for utilizing an on-site crushed rock/soil blend, producing a high density subgrade to support the heavy equipment and structure loads on shallow spread footings. This resulted in a considerable cost savings for the owner.

Phase II included the construction of the 457,000-square-foot gypsum wallboard manufacturing facility. The steel-frame structure is approximately 2,500 feet long, has varying widths and is over 100 feet high at the primary Mill Building.
