AGAR – Climate Controlled Food Distribution Center

Agar Supply Company, Inc., New England’s top independent wholesale distributor of beef, seafood, pork, and poultry products, moved from its antiquated Dorchester, Massachusetts location to a new, 270,000 SF corporate headquarters, cold storage and freezer facility in Taunton, Massachusetts. Dacon assisted in the move by providing a comprehensive design/build construction management package – completing all design, engineering, permitting, and construction – and maintaining control over the project schedule. The facility features high-bay freezer and cold storage areas ranging from 28-foot clear height to 48-foot clear height, an efficient refrigeration/freezer package to allow for building temperatures ranging from 42° Fahrenheit to -10° Fahrenheit, and a detached maintenance garage. The building was designed to accommodate 100,000 SF of future expansion.
