From Concept to Creation We Make Your Facility Expansion a Reality

If you are planning on expanding your business soon and need a facility that will meet your new production requirements, chances are the last thing you want is another project to manage. The benefit of choosing a design-build firm, is that you are working with a team that specializes in every phase of the process, eliminating the confusion of working with multiple contracts.

When considering the expansion of your production facilities the preliminary design phase is a fundamental part of the master plan. A design-build firm will work with you to conceptualize the overall design of your new facility and see the project through to completion, ensuring it meets all your production requirements while saving time and money.

Featured Facility Expansion Project: Michael David Winery, Lodi, CA

Michael David Winery is a family owned and run winery that has been cultivating the landing in Lodi, CA since the 1850’s. The family began growing wine grapes in the early 1900’s, and today Michael David Winery produces over 700,000 cases of wine annually with nothing but production increases on the horizon.

FDC is proud to have been chosen by a leading winemaker such as Michael David Winery to undertake the expansion of their existing facility.


Most recently our expert build team constructed a 2 million gallon raised tank farm to house their wine for aging. 

We completed the addition of a new fruit receiving facility on their Lodi property, which included two truck lanes for processing both red and white grapes, a new refrigeration plant, and additional presses. 

Our past expansion projects for the Micheal David Winery also included the completion of a 10,000 square foot production office building, putting their facility at a total of 35,000 square feet of production space.
