Several 1940s-era buildings located on the property of
General Motors Corp
in Warren are undergoing renovation and rebuilding that involve 3D modeling and other high-tech apps.
The project is part of a $325-million investment by GM to increase production at the plant that produces transmissions for some of GM's most popular vehicles.
About 500,000 square feet of the massive 2-million-square-foot facility will be renovated. Two administration buildings are being demolished and 14 existing work bays will be rebuilt as will roads and underground utilities.
A new mechanical room and electrical switchgear room will be added, and new concrete surfaces will be placed in production areas.
A new employee entrance, lobby, break area and work prep area are part of the project that is supposed to make GM more efficient, worker-friendly and up-to-date.

out of Southfield and teams of subcontractors.
