DrinkPAK is the premier West Coast contract manufacturer of premium alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. As the most technologically advanced canned beverage facility in North America, DrinkPAK’s 24/7 operation can produce 2.1 billion cans annually. DrinkPAK engaged DD+B as the General Contractor to construct Line 1 of its new facility. This complex project required close collaboration between DD+B and DrinkPAK to create a functional, innovative facility that provides necessary space for the fast-growing company. From the start of slab demolition to the first produced can of sellable product, DD+B worked tirelessly around the clock to deliver an operational facility in just four months.

Key Project Details

Delivered Speed to Market – DrinkPAK had contracts with some of the beverage industry’s largest producers that reflected immoveable “must produce product by” dates, necessitating a rapid construction timeline
Overcame Obstacles – Permitting delays pushed back the start date, but DD+B was able to achieve the near-impossible, keeping the project on track for the initial delivery date and providing a fully operational facility in four months
Developed Ongoing Partnerships – As a result of the quality and speed of work, DD+B is now working with DrinkPAK on Lines 2 & 3 within the facility
