This existing, pre-engineered structure was previously a wire coat hanger factory. To create a state-of-the-art food processing facility, Miron constructed a 20,000 square-foot IMP box inside the existing building consisting of a raw cooler, two production rooms, and a finished goods cooler. An ice bank/chiller system provides refrigeration for the production rooms, and both coolers include ceiling-hung evaporators and exterior air-cooled condensing units. A stainless, covered trough near the ceiling of production rooms provides future flexibility for both adding or removing electrical and air requirements for equipment.
The project included steel structure reinforcement for additional building loads, two new steel-framed roof top platforms for equipment, replacement of underground plumbing and existing concrete floor, application of ¼” polyurethane flooring to production rooms, and new food safety zones with separate hand wash and parts wash sinks.
The raw cooler has the added feature of a stainless platform that allows guests to view the production rooms from above without entering the production space, and the new lobby in the front office provides space for guests to gather.
