S&D Expansion "on Target" for August, 2014 Open
“The work is progressing well,” said Scott Seebold, Director of Engineering & Technical Services for S&D Coffee & Tea. “If the weather continues to cooperate we hope to complete the work in time for operations to begin in August 2014.”
The construction is on a three-phase plan -- Phase One involves site work and grading around the existing building. Phase Two will involve the up-fit and expansion of the current building and Phase Three will be the installation of new equipment. The grading effort started on October 28th and will continue into June 2014. That effort involves lowering the soil by four feet to set up loading docks at the existing building, creating a bio-retention pond and landscaping.
The up-fit and expansion of the new building will commence in December. All the work on the existing building should be completed by the end of June. New equipment installation begins in March Completion of the expansion is expected by the end of July.
“We haven’t encountered any major problems to date,” added Seebold. “We've had a great working relationship with the City of Concord Planning Department throughout the design phase of the project and appreciate all the assistance they've given us throughout the process.”
