SAIC Delivers Soft Drink Production and Distribution Center On-Time, Under Budget
SAIC was instrumental in helping Dr. Pepper Snapple Group, Inc., complete construction on its $130 million, 57-acre bottling facility in Victorville, Calif., on time and under budget, despite a significant construction delay because of building permit issues.
Dr. Pepper Snapple Group, Inc. (DPS), is one of North America's leading refreshment beverage companies, manufacturing, bottling, and distributing more than 50 brands of carbonated soft drinks, juices, teas, mixers, water, and other premium beverages. In 2008, DPS hired SAIC to design and build its new bottling facility and warehouse in Southern California.
The original construction schedule was 14 months, with construction set to start October 2008. The building permit, however, did not come through until April 2009. SAIC's crew was able to overlap construction activities to overcome the delay and deliver the project on the originally scheduled completion date of Feb. 24, 2010. Just one year after DPS purchased the property, the soft-drink company began production on its signature Hawaiian Punch® beverage.
The $130 million, 57-acre facility includes a 280,000-square-foot production building, a 588,000-square-foot warehouse facility, a 26,000-square-foot administration building, and several other buildings. In addition to finishing on time and under budget, the project has been submitted to the U.S. Green Building Council for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) certification.
