Private ClientWebsterville Dairy Expansion
Engelberth Construction was hired for the expansion of a Vermont dairy production facility.
The project was done in multiple phases to accommodate continued operations. The expansion increased the facility by 38 percent and included renovation to the existing fresh cheese facility.
Phase 1 included constructing two new block additions. An 1,870 sf addition to house whey load-out, whey processing, a lab, offices and conference room. A 6,203 sf addition to house new electrical, blend, HTST, bulk storage rooms and a milk receiving bay and two silo vestibules. The setting of six new silos and repurposing of one new silo was part of this phase.
New electrical, plumbing, mechanical and fire protection services required close coordination with the client to tie into the existing plant. Daily milk deliveries and coordinating with the client’s process piping contractor were closely collaborated.
Site improvements included a truck turn around area, retention pond restoration, retaining wall, paving
and grit separator tank (cast-in-place).
Phase 2 entailed building a 5,470 sf insulated metal panel addition. This supports infrastructure updates allowing for the relocation of loading docks and trash compactor, new electrical room and mechanical space for boilers and support of exterior chiller units.
