Kimberly-Clark Ogden Consumer Products Facility

Working within a highly-compressed schedule, Fluor completed construction of this $110-million grass-roots consumer products manufacturing facility in just nine months.

Fluor provided a fast-track execution delivery to include structural buildings, infrastructure, utilities and installation of process equipment.



Client's Challenge

‚ÄčTo meet growing market demand for disposable diapers, Kimberly-Clark sanctioned a capital project to build the greenfield Ogden manufacturing plant. Covering an area of 430,000 square feet under roof, the facility includes the manufacturing area, automated storage and retrieval systems, a mechanical and electrical building, an office building, a security building, truck and train docks, and service support facilities.



Fluor's Solution

The fast-track schedule necessitated the closest possible cooperation between the design and construction teams. Through weekly constructability reviews with the construction team, the design team was able to incorporate a substantial number of cost-saving approaches.

An emphasis on quality by Kimberly-Clark and Fluor prevailed throughout the project. The resultant smooth checkout and start-up of production, with saleable products being produced over six weeks earlier than planned, was indicative of the success of this project.


Conclusion

In addition to this Ogden, Utah facility, Fluor has carried out work for Kimberly-Clark plants in Coosa Pines, Alabama and in Paris, Texas.

Fluor also has built two non-woven manufacturing facilities for Kimberly-Clark in Lexington, North Carolina and LaGrange, Georgia.
