Tillamook Creamery Warehouse Automatic Storage and Retrieval System

Share on:

GHD provided engineering and construction support services to allow a fast-track warehouse expansion while the Tillamook County Creamery continued operating. Its new state-of-the-art cheese warehouse includes boilers, maintenance, refrigeration, and steam facilities.

In order to accommodate the new aging/storage warehouse, the existing boiler plant was relocated. Site water and utilities were relocated and expanded to support the operational relocations and the new warehouse.

GHD was engaged by Covert Engineers to design the mechanical and civil engineering to expand on-site storage utilizing state-of-the-art Automatic Storage and Retrieval System (AS/RS) technology, centralized refrigeration, and a new steam generation facility. The project included developing as-built drawings of the existing areas that would be expanded or affected by the new addition.

Project elements included:

  • New boiler plant
  • Process and utility pipe rack
  • Plumbing and process waste additions
  • Site water supply
  • Fire protection
  • Stormwater and sewer improvements
  • New air compressor utility center
  • Cheese laboratory additions
  • Specialized industrial HVAC
  • Shop addition
  • Truck shipping addition
  • Process equipment for projected increased cheese, butter and ice cream production
