Areas of Expertise

Collage_3

ONEsource is proud to have been a part of the planning, architecture, engineering, procurement and construction of facilities in the Dairy, Food Processing, Beverage, Poultry, Industrial, Manufacturing and Distribution industries.

Our expertise is backed by an experienced team of technical staff, comprised of architects, engineers, construction professionals, and food science specialists. Many of our professionals come from major food and beverage processing companies where they served in senior engineering and operations management capacities. Our experience encompasses liquid process and beverage plants, frozen and fresh prepared foods, dairies, bakeries, red meat and poultry, confectionery and snack foods. USDA, FDA and various international design standards are continually updated by our specification writing and quality control departments.

Our approach to design and construction often begins from the inside out. Before we address site issues, aesthetics, building materials and systems, we analyze your operating, buying and merchandising practices. We then compile and collate all relevant data, which includes expected growth levels, future item count, and overall product movement. We provide the industry’s most comprehensive and integrated services, and feature licensed and degreed architects, engineers and veteran specialists. These professionals coordinate operation issues such as labor standards, inventory control, transportation, and logistics with the planning, engineering and scheduling process.

Early Planning & Site Search and Selection

Finding the right site for a manufacturing or distribution facility presents unique challenges. Accessibility, size, cost and zoning are important considerations, but so are labor availability, labor cost, tax incentives, services, and quality of work life issues. Our approach considers the hard (financial and physical) and soft (quality of life) issues that affect selecting a site including analyzing the suitability of existing structures versus Greenfield sites.
