Golden County Foods ~ Frozen Food Line Addition

Plover, Wisconsin

Project Description

Golden County Foods, Inc. experienced significant growth in their business over recent years, this meant an expansion of the Moore Road facility was needed to accommodate increased production capacity. Boldt managed all design, engineering and construction for the addition of a new frozen food line. This addition is 39,800 sq. ft. in size.

The overall expansion is a single building addition, consisting of a main process line, process support areas and employee facilities. The following are key features of the new addition:

  • Main floor production and mixing room (includes a spiral freezer and packaging operations)

  • Equipment room with an electrical mezzanine located above

  • Temporary maintenance room

  • Ammonia plant (engine room)

  • Waste product/water treatment room

  • Break room with lockers, men’s and women’s restrooms

The CMU foundation walls transmit building loads to spread footings with the superstructure consisting of structural steel framing and concrete masonry walls. The roof system is constructed of steel joists, joist girders on tube steel columns and a ballasted, EPDM membrane over rigid insulation. A masonry fire wall is located at the transition between the new addition and the existing facility.

The interior food processing spaces adhere to strict WDA/USDA requirements.
