This ground-up project includes a 52,000-SF production and warehouse space and 13,000 SF of office on two floors. The production area includes an 85-foot tall “high bay” to house the plastics production equipment. The facility includes a maintenance area with an overhead crane and truck doors for shipping and receiving operations. The site work consisted of excavating about 15 feet, as the building was placed in an area with an existing slope that needed to be graded flat. This project includes more than a quarter-mile of rail spur to service the new building.
Anchor Construction coordinated the entire project as a design-build project to meet key milestones required by the client, including an official groundbreaking ceremony with local elected officials and the planned equipment installation and ribbon-cutting ceremony. The design pays special attention to food-grade certification requirements (SQF, Safe Quality Foods), as well as coordination with the routing of cable trays for electrical equipment connections and resin-handling equipment for the plastic production processes.
