It’s the dream of every manufacturing, production, or industrial company: expanding your reach and your facilities. But it’s difficult to plan [...]
Storee Construction has been building, renovating, and adding to industrial and commercial buildings for more than 50 years. During that time, we’ve grown our operation to incorporate all aspects of production and manufacturing facilities. From upgrading the production process itself to moving entire plants.
Why call a construction company and a safety expert and an equipment mover and whatever else your plant needs? Storee Construction handles all project management aspects of a project in a single contract. We’ve worked with many large industrial and commercial outfits, offering all of the services below.
The Storee Construction design-build method includes planning, architecture, and construction of every aspect of your new facility. From site evaluations to final walkthroughs, we’ll keep you up to date on where your construction project stands. Once your site needs have been established, we’ll coordinate architectural and engineering services to get an appropriate plan into place.
The Storee design-build team has architect and engineering partners that we select specifically to meet the design-build project requirements. We coordinate the design with their expert involvement. Storee provides industrial solutions that bridge the gap between industrial functionality and engineering design requirements.
Storee Construction has been building commercial facilities for decades and can make recommendations based on your needs. From locker rooms and office spaces to auditoriums complete with video conferencing capabilities, we’ve built it all. That includes setting foundations and footings, installing HVAC systems, and even situating parking lots for maximum coverage.
There isn’t much we won’t do when it comes to commercial construction. By working with a single point of content, you’ll save time and money during the design-build process.
In addition to building commercial facilities from the ground up, Storee Construction also works with existing buildings. This could include expansions, additions, renovations, and remodelings. As buildings age, and technology improves, there are times when a few upgrades are all that’s needed.
Or maybe you aren’t looking for a full-blown industrial complex. We also offer services for smaller projects. Our design-build approach is to evaluate your plant and talk to you about your needs. Guided by that consultation, we provide the same levels of experience, professionalism, and eye for detail to every building client.
As manufacturing and production began ramping up in the early 1900s, conveyors were used to great effect. Through the decades, this technology began to improve, becoming more efficient, durable, and flexible. Today, conveyors can move products up, over, around, and throughout a facility to improve delivery system rates.
In addition to moving products around the facility, conveyors allow building owners to make the most of the available space. For example, a conveyor belt system can be built overhead to take advantage of that unused space. Instead of adding more square footage, you’ll be able to use the space you already have, lowering project costs.
A well-designed manufacturing operation is a sight to behold. Products are built, moved around the facility floor, and efficiently placed for loading and delivery. We design optimized production efficiencies to ensure your plant is running as smoothly as possible. This could include product handling, building additions, or even an improved floor plan.
In addition to designing a floor plan for the facility, Storee Construction also offers emergency and maintenance services. Any amount of downtime will lead to cost overruns. If an accident halts production, it’s important to act fast to get operations up and running again. We will also assess your current situation and recommend preventative measures.
As facilities age, so does their infrastructure. But instead of several different contractors responsible for improvements throughout the building, it just makes sense to work with one company. Storee Construction is equipped to handle every aspect of your facility, including your electrical system.
Without power, there is no production. We install, retrofit, and reconfigure electrical systems to make sure your building stays up and running. We also introduce energy-efficiency wherever possible. Upgrading your facility may cost a little up front, but will save you money in the long run.
While it’s difficult to say which aspect of a facility is the most important, workplace air quality ranks near the top. Whether it’s an office building or an industrial plant, it’s a problem if workers get sick on the job.
That’s why proper ventilation is so important. Removing contaminants from the air or introducing clean air goes a long way to protecting the health of your crew. If you feel your facility ventilation is doing more harm than good, call in Storee Construction for an assessment. We’ll make sure to get your HVAC system up to code and keep your workers as safe as possible.
Moving an operation of any size can be a hassle. Stacking chairs for removal, taking down cubicle walls, and disassembling conference room tables takes away from actual work. Now imagine doing the same thing with a large manufacturing facility. Moving production equipment that can weigh up to 50 tons is no easy feat.
Storee Construction has been moving manufacturing plants for 50 years. We have the experience to make sure every square foot of space is accounted for in the old facility. Then we’ll make equipment, layout, and installation recommendations for your new facility as well. If something works well at the old building, we’ll make sure it makes the trip.
Is your current equipment starting to show its age? Are you getting ready for a plant relocation? Or will a new floor plan help the production process become more efficient or handle a larger workload? In each of those cases, your equipment will need to be moved, either across the factory floor or across state lines.
Our cranes, riggers, dollies, and other moving equipment are capable of moving machines weighing 50, 100, and even 300 tons. And our crews are experienced enough to make sure your equipment gets to point B from point A safely. We also perform modifications or customizations during installation to make sure your equipment performs its best at the new location.
As your facilities contractor, Storee Construction will become an expert on all aspects of your plant. From safety protocols to production line maintenance, we’ll make sure it is running just as it should. This could include repairs, facility upgrades or additions, or even making sure pedestrian areas remain safe.
Hiring a single contractor to manage these areas – instead of several contractors each managing a single area – will streamline the process. Working in coordination with the facility management staff, all operations can be integrated into a single entity.
Manufacturing or industrial plants are often very specialized, requiring very specialized customizations. Catwalks, dumpers, and even equipment guards can vary from building to building, sometimes in the same building. Storee Construction understands there are very few “one-size-fits-all” solutions when it comes to facility components.
That’s why our metal fabricators work to understand exactly what you need. No matter if it’s fall protection around a ladder or overhead monorails, we’ll fabricate the pieces you need. And we’ll work closely with you to schedule installation times to make sure production interruptions are kept to a minimum.
It could be a shift in product focus, updated safety codes, or any number of reasons. But when it’s time to upgrade your processes, it’s important to work with someone who truly understands your business. Storee Construction has been working with commercial, industrial, and manufacturing facilities for more than 50 years. Use that experience to your advantage.
During the design process, we’ll look at every aspect of the upgrade. Equipment performance, integrating upgrades, and even if a machine is currently being used to its potential. Once a plan has been finalized, we’ll schedule a time for implementation that reduces the amount of facility downtime.
Certain production jobs just have an inherent amount of danger. But there are many steps facilities can take to make the workplace as safe as possible. More than a billion dollars are lost every year due to worker injuries suffered on the job. Both in lost production as well as injury settlements.
As a facility safety contractor, Storee implements upgrades to the work floor as well as safety protocols to help ensure safety. Safer catwalks improved air ventilation, and installing safety shut-offs are just a few adjustments to keep your crews safe. Yes – accidents will still happen. But why not keep the number of accidents to a minimum?
Choose Storee Construction as your design-build contractor. Whether you need a site evaluated for a brand new facility or your entire production system overhauled. We take time to understand what you and your facility truly need and then get to work. One point of contact produces cost savings and cuts down on miscommunication.
