Turner has been selected as project manager for an expansion of the Sisecam TR8 Glass Factory in Ankara, Turkey.

“This factory is a great opportunity for Turner to utilize the expertise of our specialized Industrial Group, who have successfully completed many similar projects around the world,” said Mehmet Sami Kilic, Turner International’s country director for Turkey, expressing his enthusiasm about joining the project. “We’re looking forward to delivering a great project and great value to our clients with our wealth of experience and collaborative use of global best practices.”

Sisecam Flat Glass is a leading European glass producer, with manufacturing facilities in multiple countries. They produce glass for architectural, automotive, solar, and home appliance applications. The TR8 Glass Factory is an industrial flat glass factory that serves as an expansion to an existing plant in order to produce colored flat glass.

With a total building area of 60,000 square meters (645,000 square feet), the new facilities will include a furnace building, bath building, cooling and cutting house, a warehouse, and a chimney that will reach 100 meters tall. Turner will manage the preconstruction and construction phases of the factory facilities, and is currently assisting in the selection of an architect for the project. 

The Sisecam TR8 Glass Factory is scheduled for completion in 2020.
