Great Wall Motors

New major car manufacturing facilities 
Tula Oblast, Russia

Great Wall Motors Company Ltd is China’s largest sport utility vehicle (SUV) producer. When they decided to build a new production facility in Russia the company acquired a 229 ha plot of land that will compromise over 70 buildings and objects in production as well as residential areas with 2,500 working places. Despite a relatively short deadline, the whole project – from concept design and permitting to detail design, fire-fighting solutions and environmental impact assessments – was thorough and completed. More than 100 engineers of Bilfinger Tebodin from 7 countries were involved. With BIM technology a detailed 3D building design was developed, based on the input from all technical disciplines. It decreases time on design work, avoids clashes and decreases collisions, and provides real-time lists of materials, specifications and equipment.
