ESI Group awarded a Gold for Grifols PLC Project

Hartland, Wis. – ESI Group USA, a nationally accredited design-build engineering and construction management firm specializing in the food industry, was awarded a Gold in the General Construction – Industrial (Over $3 Million) category at ABC’s Project of Distinction banquet.

The 24th annual program selects 32 projects deserving of either a gold or silver award.  Projects must meet predefined standards in terms of Safety, Scope, Project Value, References, and ABC member project involvement to be considered a qualified entry.  If project scores do not meet the standards for either silver or gold then a winner is not selected for that category.

This new world-class 83,500 square foot, highly temperature controlled, Plasma Logistics Center, tested the skills of the design-build project team.  ESI was able to overcome the site challenges and the fact that it was one of the rainiest seasons on record to deliver this accredited facility on time and under budget.

President Brad Barke of ESI states, “The Grifols project presented unique design and construction challenges for all involved.  Together this project teams expertise and commitment were the key contributors in making this a successful project.”  “We are proud to have this accomplishment recognized and hope for continued success in the future.”
