Winery General Contractor Project In Lodi, CA
The Trinchero Family (Sutter Home) facility in Lodi, CA has been developing and expanding for over 15 years with FDC at their side. The 297 acre site for this plant was specifically chosen for the ability to expand over the years. This high volume facility houses tanks ranging from 2,500 gallons to 360,000 gallons and has a total capacity of 50 million gallons of juice. It is able to receive 125,000 tons of fruit annually. This processing plant also houses a 660 KW PV system, includes a new waste water treatment plant, administration buildings, and a variety of service and equipment buildings.
The latest addition to the expansion was a 750,000 SF bottling and automated palletized storage warehouse and distribution building along with 80,000 SF of production support buildings. The palletized storage system required a portion of the building to be 96 feet in height. The most cost effective way to achieve that height and maintain sound structural integrity was the use of a pre-engineered metal building.
