ARCO has been engaged to provided design and construction services for Arizona Beverages’ 620,000 square foot new production and bottling facility.
At the heart of Arizona’s mission is their promise to deliver skillfully-produced and great-tasting products to their customers. To deliver on the promise Arizona is building a new high-tech production and distribution facility in New Jersey.
ARCO was brought on board to redesign the building core and shell and to prepare a plan for the 600,000sf production and bottling facility with a fast-track schedule.
ARCO used their unique design/build approach to develop a scope of work, schedule and a fixed cost early in the schematic design phase. The streamlined approach addressed the building requirements and anticipated the needs of the beverage production vendor, including 5 process lines, a water purification system and 13.2 KV medium voltage service, with (5) interior 3,000 AMP substations. This nimble approach allowed for critical decisions to be made, without delaying the schedule or increasing the cost. To accommodate the FDA requirements of the Process areas, a phased schedule was developed that allowed this regulated area to be completed before the support areas were constructed.
ARCO is providing consulting, design, procurement, construction and commissioning services for this 620,000 sf, tilt-wall building. The project includes 620,000 sf for manufacturing, filling, finishing, packaging, and distribution with 45 dock positions. The structural system was designed to accommodate future solar panels.
