This $9.4 million project was a two phase effort to convert an existing warehouse building into a food manuafacturing and packaging facility. Phase 1 was a 185,000 square foot design-build project that included the interior demolition and renovation of an existing warehouse building into a type F-1 food manufacturing and packaging facility and type B office spaces. Work included new roofing, installing insulated panel partitions, acoustical ceilings, steel truss support system, new wash bay, and new mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems. Exterior improvements included retention basin, new water service, new SRP power service, grease interceptor & PH system with added sewer connection. Owner equipment was also installed, which required designed layout, process piping and controls, setting of manufacturing tool lines and equipment that was self-performed by BRYCON to maintain strict schedule milestones.
Phase 2 was a 30,475 square foot design-build project in which BRYCON self-performed 90% of the work, including demolition and renovation of an existing warehouse building into a Type F-1 dog biscuit line. BRYCON installed a large commercial oven, gas and vent piping as directed by LeClerc Foods. In addition, BRYCON completed re-roofing 100,000 square feet of the facility while reinforcing old mechanical equipment from the roof structure. All of this work was delivered on a three-shift work schedule each week. This project was fast tracked in order for the Owner to complete production testing and the startup of the line. BRYCON's self-perform method increased efficiency as the design developed to deliver the project on time and significantly under Owner's projected budget.
