Building a Food Plant on a Short Schedule: 4 Ways to Fast-Track Your Construction Project
Stellar, a construction firm, shares best practices for executing food plant construction projects on tight schedules. Using the example of the US Cold Storage facility in Laredo, Texas, they highlight four key practices. First, defining goals and requirements early on, such as providing floor plans, site plans, and specifications, helps streamline the process. Second, establishing a point of contact and maintaining open communication with the construction team ensures effective decision-making and progress updates. Third, giving the builder flexibility in sourcing subcontractors expedites the hiring process and accelerates the project timeline. Finally, engaging with local government officials early on and building a positive relationship can facilitate the permitting process. These practices contributed to the successful completion of the US Cold Storage project.
