From meat to eggs, ISG converted a processing facility to match the operations of its new owner.
An egg producer purchased a former meat processing building with the intention of converting it into an egg processing facility.
ISG worked with Primera Foods, a egg processing company with multiple locations in the Midwest, when it purchased an existing 86,000 sq. ft. precast building that was previously utilized for meat processing. The building was converted to an USDA approved egg processing facility including grading, breaking, liquid pasteurization and packaging, and spray drying.
The renovation included replacing and repositioning walls, replacing several floors, adding drains, designing HVAC systems to balance the air flow and changing traffic patterns in the building as well as designing new electrical and mechanical systems. A portion of the building roof was removed and a new second story was added to allow for the addition of a spray dryer. The addition was designed to account for sanitation specific to the process while utilizing and improving the existing building. The multiple cell lagoon system for wastewater was re-permitted, tested for compliance and redesigned to meet new codes.
