Our work with Accretech goes beyond the production of precision measuring systems and focuses on the people who make them. A biophilic design that centers wood elements creates a space where people enjoy working while using sustainable materials and building systems.

Communication across cultures and disciplines defines our work on this project. Working with Accretech, we came to understand form, function, and human well-being not as separate concepts, but as parts of a holistic approach to their work.

When approached to complete a CBD extraction/refinement facility, we were excited to partner with a company that is making a meaningful impact on our community.

According to a Forbes Health article, benefits of CBD oils include offset of anxiety and depression, treatment of select epilepsy syndromes, reduction of PTSD symptoms, alleviation of ALS symptoms and more.

The $1.1 million CBD extraction and refinement facility was built in Estacada, Oregon. The building was a transformation of a pre-engineered metal building and seismic retrofit of the existing two-story building. The build began with the construction of a new internal structure to support all the overhead equipment.

Other elements included the construction of a complete C1D1 CBD extraction, short path distillation and refinement facility with an industrial kitchen, packaging, shipping, and receiving areas.

Along with a full ethanol extraction lab, the building also involved a chemical storage/refinement suite, a packaging/shipping facility, and a kitchen. The new 23,000 square foot facility includes additional finishes of the property such as a freezer room, a testing/compliance room, administrative offices, restrooms, corridors, and equipment platform.

We have completed a variety of projects for Brew Dr. Kombucha over the last few years totaling up to $14.5 million.

Outgrowing their original space, Brew Dr. Kombucha looked to our firm to help renovate a 50,000 square foot warehouse into a new kombucha processing facility with distilling in Tualatin, Oregon.

The facility included the installation of three Spinning Cone Columns (SCC stills), a massive cooler, more than 80 large fermentation tanks and other brewery equipment. This unique distilling system was brought from Australia, to completely extract the alcohol from the kombucha. No one else in the U.S. is doing this currently, making Brew Dr. advanced in their process and producing a quality product. Construction of a new bottling and canning line and administrative offices was also a large aspect of the new facility.

During the build, our project team developed solutions from cost-saving reusable air ventilation to complex mechanical configuring to promote the most efficient and profitable output for the operation.
