Conagra Brands recently broke ground on its new vegetable processing facility in Waseca, Minnesota. The project is being completed in a phased approach with several building packages being released as phases are completed. We are providing architectural, structural, plumbing, fire protection, office HVAC, and building electrical design services. We have designed the foundations package and building envelope to date. Underground plumbing, fire protection and building interiors are in development currently. This brand new, state-of-the-art, 250,000-square-foot facility will process peas and corn grown by nearby farms. Agriculture is the lifeblood of the community, and the facility’s proximity to the growers will provide a quick turnaround time from the field to the plant, allowing vegetables to be processed and sent out to retail locations quickly, thereby maintaining their freshness. Conagra has had a long-term presence in Waseca, and the new plant will create jobs and drive economic development in the City.
