TILT-UP WAREHOUSE SEISMIC RETROFIT
NEWLY WED FOODS R&D LAB RENOVATION
HORN LAKE, MS
SSR performed a seismic assessment and retrofit design for a longtime client who runs a food grade manufacturing and warehousing business. They were operating in three tilt-up style buildings, totaling nearly 300,000 SF dating back to the 1960s. The goal of the project was to add seismic resistance to the buildings so that they can essentially remain in operation during the 500-year design earthquake.
SSR provided engineering design services for the renovation of Newly Wed Foodsâ€™ existing 5,000 SF research and development lab. The project also included the design of a new 1,200 SF sample lab which was constructed in an existing dry storage warehouse.
WINSTON PLYWOOD & VENEER
EDIBLE OIL FILTRATION SYSTEM
In April 2014, an F-4 tornado struck the City of Louisville. Just 30 days prior, New Wood Resources had purchased the mill to establish a new business called Winston Plywood & Veneer. The mill was in the direct path of the tornado and completely destroyed. Today, the mill is the newest, most technologically-advanced plywood mill in North America, featuring state-of-the-art machine control centers and integrated computer controls throughout the facility. It also includes an integrated log processing, peeling, and drying operation. SSRâ€™s unique design services included high pressure steam, compressed air, material conveying high pressure duct, and dust collection design.
The bleaching process is the first of several oil refining steps that cooking oils go through prior to landing on grocery store shelves. After the bleaching process, oils are then deodorized, sterilized, and packaged for shipping. An analysis of this confidential clientâ€™s situation revealed that the bleaching and filtration system had not been updated since 1976 and the low throughput rate was bottlenecking the remaining refinery steps. The project included the design of a new production building to house the new bleaching, filtration, and processing equipment.
GLAXOSMITHKLINE COOL ORANGE
KOHLER MANUFACTURING PLANT
MINAS GERAIS, BRAZIL
SSR provided engineering for a new pharmaceutical product for GSK. The new process was installed in an existing area of the plant. Part of that engineering included a new rooftop air handling unit to maintain specific room temperatures (70° ±2°) and humidity levels (35% RH or less) design setpoints. The overall design met with the energy efficiency criteria requirements of GSK. Control algorithms, sequence of control, and P&ID’s were incorporated into the design of the project to establish the efficient and effective operation of the equipment and overall HVAC system.
The project consisted of the expansion of a manufacturing complex located in Minas Gerais, Brazil. The project encompassed the conversion of 100,000 SF of warehouse space to manufacturing bays; the construction of 200,000 SF mixeduse space to serve raw material handling, manufacturing, and finish product warehousing with 10 truck loading docks; new 10,000 SF office building; coordination of process equipment installation; new utilities; and site development including 35,000 cubic yards of grading, stormwater management system, internal roads, truck scales and parking, site lighting, security, and landscaping.
