Architect / Engineer: McMahon

Project Description:

In an effort to achieve aggressive growth goals, this client sought to increase capacity at its Kiel, WI location through a major addition and renovation project. Improvements include the addition of a new milk receiving bay, milk vestibule, and vat room, as well as the renovation of the existing milk receiving bay into a whey receiving bay. Built to the USDA’s exacting standards, the new exterior construction consists of wet cast precast panels with precast double tees and a solid precast plank roofing structure to eliminate voids in the wall cavity construction while providing a USDA concrete finish. The interior features vitrified wall and floor tiles, as well as sealed concrete surfaces to prevent dusting and deter bacteria growth. Once complete, the new receiving bay will allow up to eight full-sized milk tankers to unload at one time. The milk vestibule will be able to accommodate up to six 12’ diameter milk silos.

As part of the project schedule, Miron was tasked with completing the vat room addition and coordinating Owner move-in with no impact to cheese production. Through strategic project phasing, we will be able to complete the new construction, renovations, and demolition within an aggressive timeframe with minimal disruption to existing operations.
