Inside Brandt’s Fabrication Shops
One of Brandt’s core specialties is our prefabrication services. From concept to completion, our design-build process reduces project budget while maintaining our high standards of safety and timeliness. With over 180,000 square feet of combined space in North (NTX) and South Texas (STX), our teams can manage any project to meet its unique needs.
360° VIRTUAL SHOP TOURS
Brandt’s own Construction Technology team created 360° virtual shop tours to give you the inside look into our fabrication facilities. To access the virtual shop tours, click the associated links. Note: The 360° feature works best using a computer or the Youtube app.
NORTH TEXAS PLUMBING & PIPING SHOP
This shop fabricates plumbing, hydronic piping, and process piping systems in their entirety for projects in the NTX region. Production can include structural steel supports, steam hook-up assemblies, coil hook-ups, medical gas system components, and more.
Its layout pays homage to maximum efficiency, with designated areas for each material type. Furthermore, assembly-line techniques are utilized in all processes, prioritizing safety, quality, and enhanced production. Taking a team approach to every project, this facility interfaces with multiple departments throughout the organization, including Operations, BIM, Spooling, QA/QC, and Distribution. This openness to communication enables us to produce high-quality fabrication aligned with the construction schedule.
NORTH TEXAS SHEET METAL SHOP
Our computerized sheet metal facility produces more than six million pounds of ductwork in any given year – up to eight million pounds when operating at full capacity. Last year, this shop managed multiple significant projects simultaneously, custom projects, and extensive ductwork. Furthermore, new equipment was introduced to streamline the workflow in this location.
Practicing agility and perseverance has led this team to tackle any project that comes their way. Constant communication, flexibility, and creative problem solving provide the tools they need to succeed.
NORTH TEXAS ELECTRICAL SHOP
Electrical and communications duct banks prefabricated in this shop are then shipped to the project site for a single pick installation into awaiting excavated trenches. Furthermore, this crew can pre-assemble light fixtures, in-wall rough, overhead supports and boxes, home run wire spooling, and transformer pre-assembly. Coordinating with the field and our virtual design team, we see more opportunities to utilize this facility.
Working alongside other groups in our organization enables the electrical fabrication shop to demonstrate its expertise. Recent equipment upgrades, shop re-design, and utilization of BOWS have furthered their efficiency and productivity.
SOUTH TEXAS PLUMBING & PIPING SHOP
Located a few miles from our existing Schertz office, Brandt’s newest fabrication shop occupies a 69,594 square-foot warehouse. It consists of Brandt’s South Texas plumbing and piping fabrication shop. After construction concluded in Fall 2020, our teams swiftly integrated into the facility.
A more expansive space has enabled Brandt to take on larger-scale projects, including the UHS Women and Children’s Bed Tower. This project, located in San Antonio, included the production of numerous prefabricated racks. These racks represent Brandt’s most extensive in-house crafted equipment to date.
