J & B Group Warehouse Expansion

Food Tech implements inventory management systems for food process plants.

Client Objectives:

The J & B Group wanted to expand and upgrade their facility with additional dock doors, more freezer and cooler space, and new offices.

Value Delivered:

The J & B Group had two separate buildings--one housing manufacturing and one housing a warehouse that needed more dock doors and more space. Food Tech developed a design to connect the two buildings with a continuous 80’ deep refrigerated dock.  Challenges arouse with different building elevations, and the fact that after the new addition the building actually had less dock doors. However, the new design increased efficiencies that compensated for the reduced amount of dock doors.

Scope of Services:

Food Tech provided all aspects of the Design/Build processes for this 147,000 square foot new refrigerated loading dock, freezer and storage warehouse expansion project.


As part of this expansion project, Food Tech delivered: a new refrigerated loading dock with 41 new dock positions, expanded freezer and storage space, a reconfigured and renovated refrigerated warehouse and new offices.


This was a unique project due to the difficulties in connecting two existing buildings of different elevations.
