Project Summary

This 168,000 SF production facility was a design / build project with Bleigh Construction. Klingner provided architectural, site planning, landscaping, structural, electrical, mechanical, and HVAC design. Similar services were also provided for a 33,720 SF expansion to the facility. For both projects, Klingner professionals carefully coordinated design to comply with USDA regulations, insurance company requirements, and PepsiCo’s standards for construction.

Klingner designed the main facility with the correct pre-engineered metal building components for easy expansion. The building was customized to minimize forklift damage and included floor hardener for concrete, structural column protection, and precast concrete walls to 10’ AFF. Additional elements included precast concrete panel support and thickened slabs for greater equipment flexibility. Open and private offices were included on the main level and mezzanine.

Major power distribution was provided to all areas of the facility. Fan-powered ventilation and a CO2 exhaust system were also installed.

Civil / site design included railroad access, subsurface conditions, water distribution, fire service system, storm and sanitary sewer system, downstream waste provisions, a fire pump room, detention basins, and a trail tie-in.
