Bauer Manufacturing

Overview

  • Bauer is one of the world’s largest manufacturers of foundation equipment.
  • The campus is located in the Conroe Business Park just north of Houston.
  • The campus sits on 80 acres and was built in phases, the first of which consisted of over 200,000 sq ft.
  • The KDW team used clean, low-emission materials arranged in modern, forward-thinking ways to reflect Bauer’s distinct German culture and heritage.
  • The facility is not LEED Certified at the request of the client but could pass certification at any time.

Need/Problem

  • The family-owned German company had never operated outside of Schrobenhausen, Germany.  Bauer was actively looking to expand its operations to North America but was undecided on the location because they had little information about how businesses operate in the US.

KDW Solution

  • KDW was contacted by Sebastian Bauer to make Bauer Manufacturing's move to North America seamless and smooth.
  • KDW’s team located the ideal piece of property in Conroe, Texas to solve Bauer’s logistical complications.
  • Bauer’s facility has been design/built with future expansion needs in mind.
  • KDW designed and recreated several pieces of machinery exclusive to Bauer’s German operations.
  • As of October 2014, KDW completed Bauer’s Small Parts Warehouse, with an additional office included.

"Bauer’s Mobil Drilling Rigs were so heavy we had to design and build the concrete slabs to withstand their loads; we accomplished this by establishing a 20 year baseline calculation for the distance each rig would travel across the plant, the end result, 12” thick select fill injected with 6% lime stabilization under a 12” thick concrete slab with metallic hardener."
