CONSTRUCTION OF NEW SEAFOOD PROCESSING PLANT
After a fire destroyed the Pacific Seafood dockside processing plant in Warrenton, OR in 2013, the company looked to rebuild and upgrade capacity. The facility, which was built in 1941, had to be completely rebuilt and modernized to increase its total production output. The plant processes crab, white fish, groundfish and salmon. Each process requires a separate processing line within the facility.
Greenberry joined the construction team to assist with process piping systems, structural steel fabrications, and miscellaneous steel. Greenberry initially worked with the owners to develop a BIM model showing all piping systems by process, both installed by Greenberry and by others. To avoid interferences with the structure, other systems, and utilities, Greenberry was then directed to work with the Fire sprinkler designer and refrigeration contractor to get all systems in the model. Greenberry’s various scopes included the supply and installation of waste water treatment process piping, tanks and equipment; boiler and steam system to the crab cooker and all new OEM processing equipment along with demo, relocation and installation of the existing plant equipment from their Tongue Point facility.
Additional Greenberry project scope completed for this new 78,000-square-foot facility included fabrication and installation of stair towers, elevated work platforms adjacent to process equipment, freezer enclosures, blast freezer and conveyors. As well, Greenberry installed concrete structures, forms, concrete, composite flooring, building interior partition walls, IMP panels in the processing plant rooms, and site-wide general carpentry support. The work platforms and tanks were fabricated on-site and at Greenberry’s Vancouver, WA, fabrication facility.
