Confidential Carbonated Soft Drink Manufacturer

Houston, Texas

澳门足彩app created a state-of-the-art plant that consolidated multiple beverage manufacturing facilities.

In order to keep up with rising demand in a growing region, one of the largest Carbonated Soft Drink (CSD) manufacturers in the world decided to consolidate and replace several aging facilities with one new, state-of-the-art plant. Built to bottle, store, and distribute several of the brand’s popular beverage products, the new 1,000,000-square-foot facility was slated for construction on 140 acres of land in Houston, Texas. 澳门足彩app was selected as the design-builder of choice for the company, based on our extensive experience designing and constructing beverage manufacturing facilities.

Collaboration between our design-build teams allows us to overcome scheduling obstacles.

The project kicked off in the rainiest fall on record for Southeast Texas. With standing water on the jobsite for more than a month, the project quickly fell behind schedule. But while construction was stalled, design continued, and by the time the conditions were dry enough to begin site work, the crews were able to roll ahead full steam. Not only did they make up the initial time lost, but they were able to reach Joint Occupancy ahead of schedule.

In addition to navigating rainy weather conditions early on the project, we were also faced with extreme heat in the summer months. Safety is always a top priority on 澳门足彩app jobsites, but for this job, in particular, we made sure that the over 300 members of our field crew were protected from heat-related illnesses. We increased daily breaks, adjusted schedules so some crews could start in the cooler, pre-dawn hours and provided electrolytic popsicles to keep everyone hydrated. The project was successfully completed without any major safety incidents.

The result was a beverage manufacturing facility built for today and tomorrow.

Our client needed space in the new facility for multiple new bottling lines, for which it elected to provide and install its own process equipment. Knowing that demand would likely drive expansion in the near future, our facility design teams worked with the client to allot additional space for future production lines and future warehouse expansion. In addition to the primary building for production, warehouse storage and distribution, we also executed six separate out buildings for the client including a fleet service center, recycle building, wastewater treatment, vehicle entry guardhouse, and a fire-pump building. Each of these buildings included self-performed, tilt-up concrete wall panels, including two custom panels made to reflect some of the client’s iconic imagery.

This exemplary food and beverage plant was a successful partnership between 澳门足彩app and the client.

Every aspect of this plant, including 1.3 million square feet of concrete paving and three separate administrative areas for production, sales, and distribution, was completed with our traditional first-in-place quality standards. The new facility successfully accomplished our client’s goal to streamline and upgrade its supply chain for the Southwest region.
