• Dennis Group teamed with Dole to develop the design for a forward processing plant in the Midwest. Dennis Group worked with Dole to develop the process and then designed the facility around the needs of that process.

Project Highlights

  • Dennis Group assisted Dole with site selection, and once the site selection was finalized, developed the site, executed preliminary and detailed engineering of the building, erected the building, designed the process and process utilities, installed the process equipment, and commissioned the facility to operate all in under one year.
  • In addition to the original facility, the Dennis Group executed two expansions to the Dole Springfield facility. The Dennis Group provided design/build services for a 30,000 SF warehouse expansion, and for a 25,000 SF expansion to house processing and packaging of fresh cut fruit.
