Food Processing Plants(Cavendish Farms Expansion No. 2)

This project consists of a major new 279.5 m (17,000± m²) long food processing plant. This large industrial project (incorporating a large office section) was framed with structural steel framing using gerber girder construction and steel roof beams to create large column free areas, economize application of required protective coatings and permitted fast track design and construction of the structure prior to the final selection of roof top equipment. Seismic forces were resisted by cross bracing. Included in the design were extensive mezzanines, equipment platforms, catwalks, concrete pits and reservoirs, extensive dock levelers and overhead doors.
