KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) -- General Motors has begun building a new paint shop at its Fairfax assembly plant in Kansas City, Kan.

The automaker says in a release that construction began Tuesday on the 450,000-square-foot paint shop, which is part of a $600 million investment in the plant. Construction is expected to take about two years.

GM says the upgrade at Fairfax is designed to reduce the energy needed to build the cars and to reduce water consumption and chemical waste at the 572-acre site.

The Fairfax plant builds the Buick LaCrosse and Chevrolet Malibu.
