The CAMI project, which was the largest design-build automotive plant in North America, was an extremely challenging contract. EllisDon was contracted to build a car assembly plant from scratch. Apart from the requirements of any large construction project, approximately 30% of the contract value was from mechanical, electrical and process installation.
