Overview

ISG and JBS collaborated to grow the Green Bay plant’s production capabilities through expansions to the distribution center and meat packing plant facilities.


Opportunity

For its Green Bay plant, JBS planned on major expansions to its distribution center and packing plant, which required strategic planning to streamline production.

Solution

ISG worked with beef and pork processor JBS to design updates and expansions to its Green Bay beef production plant with the intention of enhancing its packing and distribution services. The project team provided architectural and engineering services for its 174,000-square-foot meat packing plant and 95,000-square-foot distribution center. The distribution center, located across nearby railroad tracks, was equipped with freezer and cooler spaces and designed to include a conveyor bridge to connect the two locations and streamline efficiency. The team also designed an addition with offices and a guardhouse for the facility. ISG is currently working with JBS to facilitate ongoing projects for this location, including the expansion of a fabrication room and dock, as well as remodeling and enlarging the company lunch room, bathrooms, and locker rooms.
