Always a Better Plan



Q1 Food Facility Design Project Spotlight - Top Tier Ingredients LLC

The Top Tier Ingredients LLC's new potato flaking facility in Hancock, WI recently wrapped up construction. The product made at the plant will be used as an ingredient in the food industry. Our Food Facility team provided the architecture and engineering on the 50,183 sq. ft. building, and Findorff performed the construction.

The main goal of the project was to develop the site and building programming for Top Tier Ingredient's new business venture. This project presented a unique challenge, in that our team was tasked with designing the building while the process line design was still ongoing. We successfully overcame this by leaning on our experience and asking a lot of questions and verifying the information as it was received.

The final design included a receiving drive-through, holding tanks, a wet potato processing area, a dry potato processing area, dry storage, a flake warehouse, and a shipping area.

Throughout the project, Excel served as a full-service architecture and engineering partner for Top Tier Ingredients LLC. Our in-house team provided Civil Engineering, Survey, Architectural, Structural Engineering, Plumbing Design, Fire Protection, Mechanical Systems, and Electrical Engineering.
