Refurbish vs. Green-field Build: Navigating the Options

When considering refurbishment versus green-field construction, several factors come into play. While refurbishment projects may seem cost-effective and quicker, they often entail uncertainties and space inefficiencies. On the other hand, green-field builds offer greater flexibility in design and layout optimization. However, site location remains a pivotal consideration, especially concerning supply chain logistics.

As part of our consulting services, we conduct thorough evaluations of existing structures and potential build sites. Additionally, we engage in discussions with municipal and state agencies to address regulatory and planning considerations. With our guidance, you can confidently select the optimal approach for your business, whether it's a green-field build or a refurbishment project.

From compliance with FDA regulations to the implementation of Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) and Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) principles, our design solutions are meticulously crafted to mitigate food safety hazards and promote hygienic practices. Key considerations include zoning and layout optimization, utilization of hygienic materials, efficient drainage systems, and seamless wall-floor joints to prevent contamination.
