NuTec Design provides integrated design, engineering, construction, and facilities services to food and beverage processing facilities including confectionaries, snack foods, dairies, grain and cereal production, bakeries, pet foods, beverage and bottling facilities, cold storage, freezer buildings, and much more.
NuTec worked under a design-build arrangement to provide comprehensive engineering and architectural services for one of the largest confectionary projects ever built in the United States. The 360,000 sq. ft. facility expansion was designed to house multiple process lines for syrup, miniature candies, and one of the world’s most popular chocolate treats, which can be produced at a volume of 70 million per day.
When this global coffee company set out to air condition 350,000 sq. ft. of roasting, packaging, and warehousing space, they turned to NuTec to make the complicated project a reality. The cluttered plant ceiling presented a number of challenges, and the design solution was to utilize double-wall ductwork on the roof with fourteen packaged rooftop units providing 560 tons of cooling.
Fully-integrated design and construction services were provided to convert an existing, vacant manufacturing facility into a modern cocoa butter processing plant and deodorizing facility comprising more than 66,000 sq. ft. The New Jersey facility provides wholesale confectionary products to some of the nation’s leading chocolate producers.
As a result of booming business and inefficient distribution operations, a European food conglomerate retained NuTec to provide planning (including racking and slotting options) and then fully-integrated architecture and engineering services for a new 400,000 sq. ft. distribution center with 40 truck docks. The implemented solution utilized tilt-up concrete construction, and an ESFR system was employed throughout the facility.
NuTec has worked at this facility for more than three decades, providing design and construction services for several different companies occupying the plant. This particular project entailed installation of a new dry pet food production line, with new silos also being constructed. Other projects have included a new freezer building, locker room expansion, process utility upgrades, processing facility expansion, and many more.
Working on a design-build team, NuTec Design provided full-service architecture and engineering for a new 100,000 sq. ft. bottling facility including blow molding, process, and bottling operations for three production lines. A Class 10,000 clean area was also designed.
