Beans, Meats & Soups Industrial Park is a two-building project consisting of 157,952 square feet. Building one is an extremely high-tech meat processing company that utilizes calibrated equipment purchased from an Iceland-based company to process all of the meat served in the southern region of the U.S.
The entire facility, which meets all FDA guidelines, is designed to be a freezer. The building includes insulated floors, a quality control room, as well as extensive use of stainless steel and easily cleanable surfaces. Building two is a single-story food processing building with a storage mezzanine and complete interior build-out. The building is used for cooking, packaging and storing beans and its interior manufacturing area features 50,000-gallon caldrons for hydration and heating. The building itself is “compartmentalized” to withstand tornados and has an overall master plan of two additional food service buildings to form a campus.
Tilt-Up was selected for this project as it enables the use of a variety of architectural elements including a series of vertical planes as well as cantilevered “L” shaped panels that create a tectonic planar design approach to the headpieces on the office elements.
The Tilt-Up method also resulted in an economical, durable and flexible building choice.
