Upfront planning is crucial to strategic business decisions, including food facility planning and construction. A feasibility study from Food Tech includes an evaluation of your entire operation to help you define current and future goals and needs. This helps you explore possible courses of action while avoiding costly missteps during construction.
Our feasibility studies cover the following areas:
The final product of our in-depth study is the Design Report Booklet—a document that contemplates important features of a facility’s expected life cycle as well as the costs associated with building and operating the facility.
Facility sizing is a crucial step in the food facility design and planning process, in both new construction and renovations. We utilize a methodical engineering approach supported by an analysis of throughput and inventory requirements to help determine the size of facility that is best fit to your needs.
We also leverage innovative architectural programming and preconstruction services throughout the process.
Areas addressed include:
Our approach will help you realize the benefits of facility sizing and process programming when it comes to food facility engineering and food master site planning.
The right location is a top priority for new site and facility selection, but it can be a tough choice to make when all of the factors are considered. Our years of experience and in-depth understanding of food facility planning can help you choose the ideal site for your facility.
