Food Tech uses a unique design-build approach — from planning, to construction, to opening your facility. 

We create detailed architectural and engineering plans, in-house, which we then submit for building permits. This process helps make the permitting stage more efficient and straight forward. 

The plans and specifications are used to solicit multiple competitive bids at the subcontractor and supplier levels. Our construction personnel then coordinate and administer all work in the field. Food Tech remains on the project throughout the critical commissioning, qualification, and verification processes to help ensure a smooth start-up of your new facility.  

We Are 100% Objective

We do not self-perform construction work or represent specific vendors, so that we can make the best materials and systems recommendations for your unique facility without bias or allegiance to predetermined contractors or manufacturers.

Our in-house design-build disciplines include:
