Challenge: Provide an all-inclusive employee area customized to fit their existing building without creating excess dust and downtime in their processing plant.

A leading manufacturer of food, agriculture, industrial and animal nutrition products in Abeline, TX sought an all-inclusive employee area tailored to their existing facility.

The client required a comprehensive employee area that included:

  • Break room
  • Men’s and women’s locker rooms with showers and toilets
  • Training rooms
  • A “quiet room” for praying
  • Mother’s room
  • Lobby
  • Offices

One of the client’s primary concerns was inclusivity. They wanted to ensure that the new space would meet the needs of all employees, regardless of gender or religion, creating an environment where everyone felt welcome and valued. Additionally, the integration of these facilities into the existing structure needed to be done without disrupting the plant’s operations or contaminating the production environment with dust.

Fortunately, Dallas-based material handling equipment supplier W.W. Cannon had the perfect solution.

“Our client needed an all-inclusive employee area customized to fit their existing building,” explains Jacob Eason, outside sales representative at W.W. Cannon.

Comprehensive Solution: Starrco pre-engineered modular in-plant offices for expansion and separation.

The project required design consultation, layout, project management, permitting, and materials for a total of 14 rooms. W.W. Cannon ultimately provided an all-inclusive employee area that would allow every employee to feel that they were included and safe. Complete with HVAC, a modular electric package and cabling boxes (saving on costly trade installations), an Action Automatic Sprinkler Fire Suppression System and even plumbing for toilets and showers.

Cost Effective & Custom Design: Pre-engineered build is easy to customize and cuts cost

To address the client’s needs and their emphasis on inclusivity, we designed and installed custom-built modular in-plant offices and facilities using Starrco pre-engineered modular in-plant offices. These modular solutions offered several key benefits:

Dust-Free Installation: Since the modular pieces were constructed off-site and shipped to the facility for on-site installation, this significantly reduced the amount of dust generated, ensuring a clean and safe environment within the processing plant.

Inclusive Design: The facilities were designed to be inclusive, with specific spaces catering to various needs such as a “Quiet Room” for praying, mothers room, and gender-specific locker rooms with showers and toilets.

Custom Fit: The modular units were tailored to fit seamlessly into the existing building layout, optimizing space utilization and functionality.

Minimal Downtime: Our efficient installation process meant that the new facilities were up and running with minimal disruption to the plant’s operations.

Result: All-inclusive employee area customized to fit their existing building

“As a result of the installation, our client was able to provide their employees with an all-inclusive area where each person’s needs are met—and everyone feels included, regardless of gender or religion,” Outside Sales Representative Jacob Eason said.

While a pre-engineered modular office is not the solution for every challenge, with this prefab installation W.W. Cannon was able to give its client exactly what was needed, while saving time, money, and frustration.
