ISG helped Johnson Outdoors consolidate its operations into one facility location to simplify and streamline operations from production through shipping.
With operations previously housed in several facilities, Johnson Outdoors wanted to simplify its dynamic processes under one roof.
Outdoor adventure gear manufacturer Johnson Outdoors was managing operations out of several buildings before deciding to centralize into one facility. Due to the nature of the warehouse’s unique stacking systems and materials, the new facility required complex designs for an Early Suppression Fast Response (ESFR) fire suppression system to adhere to building codes. ISG’s detailed planning regarding the electrical utility, lighting, and ductwork successfully accommodated the sensitive performance requirements of the ESFR system.
Since the facility is used for office and warehousing space, the mechanical and electrical systems had to be designed to accommodate these different uses. ISG’s design team focused on providing sufficient electrical supply to meet these needs, equipping the building 1,000 amp, 480/277 volt 3-phase electrical service. The interior dynamics of the operation are in constant motion, with materials being processed from receiving to production, quality control, warehousing, and finally shipping. The majority of the operations take place at the south elevation where there are 22 overhead doors with linear blue canopies.
