Cambria

Le Sueur, MN | Food + Industrial

Overview

Cambria’s latest addition integrated new technology that allows that plant to maximize production and operational efficiency.


Opportunity

Cambria, a countertop and tile manufacturer and distributor, quickly outgrew its previous headquarters and manufacturing plant addition. The company needed nearly double the space to continue driving production and accommodate new technologies.

Solution

Building on a long-term partnership, ISG worked with Cambria to deliver a new 350,000-square-foot expansion to its headquarters and manufacturing plant. This project prioritized the installation of new technology that allows the plant to maximize production and operational efficiency while maintaining water reclamation processes for reuse on-site. To complete this project, Cambria’s specialized equipment required long lead times. In conjunction with the unpredictable Minnesota weather, this required a short timeframe for construction. ISG’s design team worked closely with the owner and construction manager to develop multiple strategic bid packages that successfully expedited bidding and construction schedules.
