Delivery Method: General Contractor
Size: 435,000 SF
Norampac, a Division of Cascades Canada ULC, hired VIP Structures as General Contractor to construct Greenpac Mill, LLC (Greenpac), a state-of-the-art containerboard mill located in Niagara Falls, New York.
Greenpac was constructed at a cost of $460 million on property located adjacent to an existing Norampac facility. The new mill has a total floor area of 435,000 SF. It manufactures lightweight linerboard made with 100% recycled fibers on a single machine having a width of 328 inches and an annual production capacity of 540,000 short tons. The machine is one of the largest and most efficient of its kind in North America.
We performed concrete foundations for buildings and machinery which included 35,000 cubic yards of concrete (3,000 truckloads) and 5 million pounds of rebar. We also supplied and installed all structural steel (5,000 tons), metal roofing and siding, and constructed all office areas.
