Let’s take a look at how these factors influence the design plan of your project.

1. Location – If this is a new construction you may need to obtain the right property for your type of building. We help you discover the right zoned locations to purchase property for your food industry, plan the utility inlets and building designs and placement for optimal speed and service. This means assessing the current utility lines, weather conditions, local atmospheric conditions, roadways, permitting issues, zoning issues, property access, and even optimal building size and type.

2. Building the Structures – PRI takes into account how the most successful food plant layouts are and how best to adapt them to your property, or utilize current structures for your business’s needs. At PRI, we use our service consultants to find the best building types, designs, internal and external layouts, storage systems, pavement, and even internal structures like utilities and interior atmospheric controls for the type of food processing your company does. Our goal is to provide you with the right facilities to make your company as productive and efficient as possible.

3. Certifications – PRI does the busy work for you and makes sure that from start to finish all the proper permits and certifications for food processing have been obtained. This includes obtaining LEED and HACCP certification for the building design and purpose. PRI understand that it is more cost effective to address these concerns and obtain certifications and permits while the project is in progress, than to change the building design or utility lines later to comply with regulations.

4. Operation Resources – Once the project is full through completion, Project Resources International then makes sure you have the tools, resources, plans and services in place to keep moving forward. PRI helps you find the right insurance for your food plant design, the right HACCP training for your team, the right logistics plan for your products, the right training for your employees, and the right managers and office personnel to keep your business moving in the direction you want to go.
