Food Process Engineering and Installation

Fisher Construction Group provides process planning and design for clients in the food and beverage industries, as well as those with industrial manufacturing projects. Early in the design | build construction process, an integrated team of designers, engineers and managers work with the owner’s team to develop a highly efficient process design, one which integrates the building and the process for maximum productivity.

Whether retrofitting an existing plant while operational, installing a new process line, or creating a new facility, Fisher’s goal is to create a design that will maximize process flow and reduce energy costs associated with producing a product.
