built with ingenuity
Since we first set up shop in 2007, we have designed, engineered, fabricated and installed projects we’re proud of with people that inspire us. Below are a few examples.
Starting with winery equipment, we’ve produced many of the nuts and bolts that make a business run – including catwalks, sorting lines, hoppers, and food processing equipment. Since then, we’ve built experience across different industries, each offering their own opportunities to bring ingenuity to the work.
Lingua Franca Wines
Architect: Lawrence Ferar & Assoc., Inc.
General Contractor: Andrew Scott Construction
Structural Engineer: BK Engineers, Inc.
For Lingua Franca’s custom aluminum catwalks, we used a scalloped design to utilize all of the space between and around the stainless steel and concrete fermenters. This design eliminates the need for most of the guardrails and gives the winemaker optimal access to the fermentation process. Once the winery was complete, we designed and built the wineries main entry gate and sign.
A to Z Wineworks, Newberg, OR
Architect: EMA Architecture
General Contractor: Walsh Construction
Structural Engineer: Grummel Engineering
This expansive aluminum catwalk project was combination of fermentation tank access and connecting pathways. The multipurpose design had to meet code requirements for winery employees and the general public. Other projects for A to Z include sanitary process piping, pneumatic punch down tools, fittings carts and press modifications.
