Less than 2 years after opening their cold storage facility in June 2014 in Stevens Point, Wisconsin, Service Cold Storage was ready to expand. They first called Tippmann Group in May 2016 with an immediate need for more space, and a hard deadline of October to complete the 97,000 square foot expansion.
Master planning during the initial design of phase one proved to be critical when this project arrived. “Tippmann Group had the foresight to present a plant to the city of Stevens Point in different pahses of what the master plan would potentially look like, really unknown to us what value that would present at the time,” said Les Dobbe, President/CEO of Service Cold Storage. “It was an extremely seemless process.”
That foresight, combined with a strong relationship built with city officials during phase 1 allowed Tippmann to begin construction right away and complete the job two weeks ahead of schedule.
“The quality of construction and how well they did during that first phase helped make the second phase go very quickly,” said Michael Ostrowski, Director of Community Development for the City of Stevens Point. “Them following through with everything that they said they would follow through with made it an easy process to do the addition.”
