Fisher Construction Group is pleased to be working with Litehouse Foods on the Ella Cooler Addition in Sandpoint, Idaho
Litehouse Foods has come a long way since selling homemade dressings out of their restaurant located on Lake Pend Oreille in Idaho more than 50 years ago. Today, they are definitely more than just delicious dressings– Litehouse Foods now offers dips, herbs, cheese and even cider!
Managed by Sr. PM Corey Anderson with Supt. Benny Vietz leading the field operations, the 25,000 SF facility will store dressings—just part of the over 1,100 different product SKU’s Litehouse has to offer. The facility will be fully racked with a 1,500 SF freezer in the coolers.
Due to be completed in October 2017, the project also includes a small transportation office, six loading docks, and forklift charging stations along with a structural upgrade to an existing building. Throughout construction, the Sandpoint facility will remain operational, producing and shipping products.
The demo of the old docks and the building of the new docks overlap during construction. Keeping the loading docks open and usable is imperative during the entire effort. Fisher’s team is carefully choreographing the project schedule to keep Litehouse’s product flow on schedule during the retrofit portion.
Now employee owned, Litehouse continues to grow market share, producing dressings, dips and other products. At Fisher Construction Group we look forward to teaming up with them as they continue to grow their company.
