Nutec worked under a design-build arrangement to provide comprehensive engineering and architectural services for one of the largest confectionary projects ever built in the United States. The 360,000 sq. ft. facility expansion was designed to house multiple process lines for syrup, miniature candies, and one of the world’s most popular chocolate treats, which can be produced at a volume of 70 million per day.
When this global coffee company set out to air condition 350,000 sq. ft. of roasting, packaging, and warehousing space, they turned to Nutec to make the complicated project a reality. The cluttered plant ceiling presented a number of challenges, and the design solution was to utilize double-wall ductwork on the roof with fourteen packaged rooftop units providing 560 tons of cooling.
Fully-integrated design and construction services were provided to convert an existing, vacant manufacturing facility into a modern cocoa butter processing plant and deodorizing facility comprising more than 66,000 sq. ft.

As a result of booming business and inefficient distribution operations, a European food conglomerate retained Nutec to provide planning (including racking and slotting options) and then fully-integrated architecture and engineering services for a new 400,000 sq. ft. distribution center with 40 truck docks. The implemented solution utilized tilt-up concrete construction, and an ESFR system was employed throughout the facility.
After a series of natural disasters around the world, this leading grocery chain determined that they needed to be able to provide power to their primary distribution center for an extended period; however, because the facility includes cold storage and freezer areas, this required a much larger system. Nutec’s design solution was a new 3,000 kW diesel generator and related accessories for standby power supply.
This leading producer of coffee filters and beans commissioned Nutec to conduct a favorable location analysis near all the east coast coffee ports. Our scope included transportation and construction cost analysis, workforce and labor characteristics, economic development incentives, tax rates, and utility costs, allowing our client’s board of directors to make an informed decision.
Nutec has worked at this facility for more than three decades, providing design and construction services for several different companies occupying the plant. This particular project entailed installation of a new dry pet food production line, with new silos also being constructed. Other projects have included a new freezer building, locker room expansion, process utility upgrades, processing facility expansion, and many more.
Working on a design-build team, Nutec provided full-service architecture and engineering for a new 100,000 sq. ft. bottling facility including blow molding, process, and bottling operations for three production lines. A Class 10,000 clean area was also designed.
Nutec was commissioned by a major player in the snack food industry to renovate an existing, 130,000 sq. ft. distribution center and convert it into a food production operation for the manufacture of chips, pretzels, popcorn, and cheese curls. Areas provided include raw goods, processing, packaging, seasoning, and finished goods storage.
This national snack food company experienced a period of major growth, necessitating an expansion of their corporate headquarters.

Engineering and architectural design for a new 48,000 sq. ft. diary facility for the production of cheese products. The 50-degree building includes 25,000 sq. ft. for cheese processing, 10,000 sq. ft. of cooler storage, and administrative space.
Multiple projects have been designed at several locations for this leading chocolate processor, including a coca bean processing expansion with bean silos, new four-level chocolate liquor building, and installation of a new chocolate/peanut product production line.
