The project required W-T to renovate an existing 400,000 SF plant, which was utilized as a packaging area, and construct approximately 150,000 SF in additional buildings to support the new process needs. The facility is one of the world’s largest ice cream manufacturing plants, and includes:

  • 27 air handling unit
  • 11,500 SF engine room
  • 22,400 SF dairy receiving area
  • 47,800 SF cold storage area with ASRS delivery system and IMP walls
  • 18,650 SF silo area
  • 213,000 SF packaging area

Electrical components include seven new 5000-amp transformers/switchboards, utilization of two existing 5000-amp transformers/switchboards, and one backup generator for emergency unloading of the cold storage building. In addition, Whiting-Turner managed the process piping and packaging installation for Phase 1 and Phase 2 packaging equipment. Overall, there was 150,000 LF of piping installed on the project.

The project involved nearly 1.1 million manhours with no lost-time accidents.
