The Automotive sector of the southeast U.S. is Context Design Group’s primary market. We have been involved with many of the OEM suppliers who have moved into the southeast U.S. to support the transition that has taken place since BMW announced plans for their ﬁrst U.S. manufacturing facility in 1992.
While holding the position of Architectural Department Manager for Simons, Inc.’s Greenville ofﬁce, Mr. David Lewis was the Lead Architect for the BMW Manufacturing Facility in Greer, SC. He was in charge of all design activities for Simons and provided facility programming, conceptual design, site master planning, as well as ﬂ ow & layout planning analysis for the complete facility. He was Architect of Record for the Body Shop, 50% Vehicle Assembly Building, Testing Labs, Administrative Ofﬁces, Cafeteria & Commercial Kitchen, and the Zentrum Vistors Center. Once this project was complete, Mr. Lewis became involved with the design of facilities for a large percentage of the Automotive Suppliers that located in the area supporting the BMW operation.
