Project includes four buildings, including a 39,000 SF Almond Hulling & Shelling Facility, 24,000 SF Hull Cover, and two 27,000 SF Walnut Bulk/Flat Storage Buildings. Processing Building includes multiple pits, trenches, and pedestals for equipment, including one pit as large as 14’ x 20’ x 16’ deep.
Each Bulk Storage Building can hold approximately 6000 tons of in-shell walnuts for long-term storage. This facility takes advantage of the benefits of pre-fabricated steel construction and concrete tilt-up. The bulk storage buildings include concrete tilt-walls up to 12” thick, to accommodate the storage of nuts piled to the eaves of the buildings.
