Special Features

Over the course of two phases, Ariake USA in Harrisonburg, Virginia has expanded their broth and seasoning manufacturing facility in to a much more spacious operation. Phase One required the demolition and relocation of the existing loading dock that was sitting in the proposed location of phase two. The scope of worked included a 10’0” high loading dock to allow waste materials to be dumped into a hopper-style truck. The loading dock was covered by a canopy to allow for 24/7/365 operations.

Phase Two was a 20,000 square foot insulated panel addition to the existing facility. The foundation walls were 10’ above finish grade and the steel structure measure 42’0” above finished floor. Within the addition, a 6,000 mezzanine increased the plant’s production space and allowed the operation of 25’ vessels. A membrane roofing system protects the internal features from all external conditions as it rests upon a deck of steel bar joists and provides a surface within the parapet walls. Although, internally, special considerations had to be made for the finishes due to the fear of rust deriving from the sanitization chemicals used for cleaning. The majority of finishes were to be stainless steel, and a special epoxy floor coating was applied to combat the sanitization chemical’s ability to rust.

The sitework consisted of several utility relocations, stormwater management, new fire hydrant and a new fire lane to circle the building. Nutrient Credits were purchased to satisfy the water quality requirement and their existing detention pond was expanded to meet the stormwater detention requirement.
