New Dairy Packaging Facility

City of Industry, CA

Providing architectural and structural design services for a new dairy packaging facility in the City of Industry, JRMA has worked on a collection of projects to create a complex fitting for the dairy food and beverage company.

In the South Facility, JRMA designed improvements to cooler storage, including the demolition of the older high bay cooler storage area and the addition of new cooler storage, all of which was designed and constructed without impacting operations. To improve product flow, a new gravity-fed rack system was employed inside a new structural steel building. 3-D digital animation showcases the bottles’ route through the facility, from receiving to filling to shipping.

In the North Facility, the freezer storage was renovated and turned into cooler storage, while other upgrades worked to ensure the longevity of the building. Steel frames now reinforce the wood structure, just one of the seismic upgrades to the building. A new roof and insulated metal wall and ceiling panels provide better energy efficiency. New dock doors, man doors, lighting, and refrigeration equipment rounded out the project, bringing the facility up-to-date and making it better prepared to handle the client’s dairy production in California.
