Mercedes-Benz Tunnel

Vance, Alabama



Mercedes-Benz U.S.



Albert Kahn Associates Brasfield Gorrie


November 2, 2001

Many unique specification requirements were taken into account during the design of this CON/SPAN® structure that stretches under a Mercedes automobile production plant. A large paint vat is located directly over the structure imposing severe loading (1050 psf ) on the structure. Circular blockouts split between two units were required for stairwell access and an extensive ventilation system.

This vehicle tunnel allowed for shortened travel time for finished vehicles to reach distribution and transportation areas by passing underneath the new plant addition. All CON/SPAN® units were installed in two days.
