CQC FOOD PROCESSING FACILITY
Clausen Quality Chocolates expanded their operations to include a west coast hub for manufacturing and distribution of candy coatings. Their 136,500-square-foot, FDA-certified facility includes a warehouse, office space and site improvements. The team provided them with preconstruction services that included budget management and constructability reviews, and value engineering ideas like substituting several types of exterior materials to get the same “look” for less.
After successful completion of their main manufacturing facility CQC asked PB to complete their expansion facility – a storage warehouse, proprietary research and development spaces, and administrative offices. This 80,000-square-foot facility is located adjacent to the main processing facility.
Subsequent projects PB completed for CQC within the plant include an 8,400-square-foot refining line and 1,000-square-foot locker room. To construct these areas, crews removed the existing slab-on-grade and installed new foundations to support heavy equipment. Crews also installed full-height (30 to 40 feet) insulated wall panels (IMPs) around the manufacturing areas with walk-on IMP ceiling caps. The team also provided and installed a combination of two- and three-level structural steel tube equipment platforms with concrete and stainless decks. All refining line finishes and systems are food-grade.
