NEW YORK, Sept. 20, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Faithful+Gould, a world-leading project and program management consultancy, is pleased to announce that Farmer Brothers' Project Evolution received an Award for Merit by the Engineering News-Record (ENR) Texas & Louisiana region in the "Manufacturing Projects" category.
Faithful+Gould served as owner's representative on behalf of Farmer Brothers for its 540,000-square-foot headquarter campus relocation in Northlake, Texas.
"We are thrilled to have worked on this project on behalf of Farmer Brothers," said Faithful+Gould Project Executive Rob Lillich. "This has been a team effort and a visionary project. It is gratifying to see the Farmer Brothers vision and the hard work of our team recognized in the receipt of this award."
This project marks the next step in Farmer Brothers' evolution and growth, creating a world-class, multi-functional facility that relocated the company's business and administrative functions from California to Texas, while elevating its manufacturing capabilities and centralizing its distribution and logistics network.
With the design-build nature of the project, fast-paced decision making was required, incorporating multiple stakeholder and manufacturing coordination to avoid impacts to construction and production schedules. The campus includes a 95,000-square-foot LEED® -certified administration building; a 127,000-square-foot manufacturing and roasting plant; a 258,000-square-foot distribution center; and 60,000-square-feet appropriated for coffee bean receiving, storage and cleaning.
Faithful+Gould's role on the project included: managing the project schedule, objectives and milestones; contract management; risk management; assistance with site selection, developer and contractor bidding; project cost controls and reporting; establishing and managing an execution strategy; overseeing scope and quality planning; and master scheduling. As a Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP) contract, the schedule was multi-faceted, with different milestone and deliverable dates.
The award will be presented at a luncheon on October 18, 2017, at the JW Marriott Houston in Houston, TX.
