Growing Regional Bakery Gets High Performance New Facility.
  • Solar Systems,
  • Lighting,
  • HVAC Systems,
  • Equipment Upgrades

A sustainable building upgrade as well as a down-to-the-studs tenant improvement.

An example of synergistic capitalism, Beckmann’s wanted to increase production and reduce costs associated with traveling between their production and storage facilities. Meanwhile, the property owner wanted to support a growing local company by renovating a recently vacated property.

Our 20 year economic pro-forma illustrated the value and benefits of renewable energy to both parties simultaneously.

The project was delivered in two phases to expedite completion and maximize available tax credits. The roof upgrades and rooftop solar were installed in 2019 while awaiting tenant improvement permits. The tenant improvements were completed in a record 90 days, while complying with strict COVID-19 protocols.

  • LED Lighting

    High-bay and special use LED lighting and controls were implemented to keep energy consumption as low as possible.

  • Advanced Control System

    New building management technologies were deployed to help maintain the proper setpoints for optimal performance.
