A spice blend manufacturer made a decision to build and operate a new dry mixing and packaging plant in California. A decision which involved leasing a developer designed and built spec building of roughly 62,000 square feet.

Epstein was hired by this spice blend manufacturer to provide architecture, structural and MEP/FP engineering as well as industrial process engineering for new enclosed rooms in the center of the spec building that will provide space for their specialty blending and packaging equipment, as well as rooms for electrical equipment and dust collectors.

There were several critical items that Epstein coordinated with the developers design team and these issues included the location and loads for walk on ceilings, location and loads for roof top HVAC equipment, and underground sewer location and depth.
