Charlotte, NC (PRWEB) April 06, 2015
New Belgium Brewery reached a major milestone this week with the topping off of the final steel beam on the malt silo at their new location in Asheville, NC. This followed another major milestone and massive coordination effort of the entire New Belgium team to install 30 fermentation tanks in March to ensure the site, building, and authorities having jurisdiction (AHJs) were ready for their delivery from Germany.
“It’s important to recognize the tremendous effort that goes into a project like this; it helps continue the positive momentum as we push through to completion,” stated Kent Calvert, senior superintendent of Adolfson & Peterson Construction. “There were so many critical path activities that were completed in order to meet these milestones and they couldn’t have happened without the entire project team coming together.”
The New Belgium Brewery will include a brewhouse, packaging line, and tasting center on an 18-acre brownfield site on the French Broad River. Sustainability is important aspect of the project. The existing structures on site were carefully deconstructed and will be used to construct parts of the new facility. The project is seeking LEED certification at the brewery and LEED Gold certification at the Liquid Center (tasting room).
