Anheuser-Busch Bottle Line Expansion
Jacksonville, Florida, USA
Haskell was selected to provide design-build services for an automated beverage and bottling plant totaling 72,000 square feet. The bottling line, which was the second of its kind attempted by Anheuser-Busch, was designed for a capacity of 22,000 cases per eight-hour shift and now exceeds 24,000 per eight-hour shift. The success of this project influenced Anheuser-Busch’s decision to continue installing this type of facility throughout the United States.
The building consists of slab-on-grade; metal wall panels supported by a structural steel frame and a four-ply, built up roof. Construction was completed without interrupting the flow of work in the existing facility.
