Overview

Epstein provided design and engineering services for a 12,500 square foot expansion to Smithfield Foods' Cudahy, Wisconsin facility, which produces the company's Patrick Cudahy brand. 

Process

This addition adds four new smokehouses and two dry rooms which provides new space to increase production capacity by three million pounds annually and allow for four additional dry rooms when future sales demand more volume.

Epstein's engineers were also responsible for the design of a process waste line along the west side of the building to mitigate potential overloading of existing process waste lines, a penthouse to house smokehouse mechanical systems, and a perimeter railing protection along the penthouse roof.
