Audi factory in Mexico
Modern and earthquake-proof production plant to roll out about 150,000 Q5-model vehicles each year for the global market
Since 2016 Audi has been manufacturing its Q5 model based in San José Chiapa in Mexico. The grounds are 460 hectares in size and feature the most modern Audi production plant worldwide. The facilities include a pressing plant with an attached strip-cutting system, a car-body unit, the paint shop, assembly and logistics halls, a media centre as well as staff common rooms. The pressing plant is a complex workshop building in which car-body parts are manufactured. Structural designers had to factor in the high dynamic loads on the pressing line, with the key parameter being a 2,100-ton drawing press, of 6,600 kN own-weight. The loads and high standard of vibration protection for neighbouring facilities called for combined pile-and-slab foundations using large bored piles. Given the prevailing earthquake risk in the region, all buildings were executed using a steel frame technique. Engineering relied on BIM methods.
