Torcon Receives Construction Excellence Award
The General Building Contractors Association of Philadelphia recently selected the new Do Good Foods animal feed production facility in Bucks County as Best Fit-Out Project in its annual Construction Excellence Awards program. Torcon provided comprehensive preconstruction and construction phase CM services for the project.
The innovative facility upcycles nutritious surplus grocery food (after stores make community donations) into healthy animal feed. This keeps quality food from going to waste in a landfill, where it produces methane and accelerates climate change. Torcon led the team that created a revolutionary automated processing operation within the renovated and upgraded 84,000 SF industrial building. Construction Excellence Awards recognize quality workmanship and industry initiatives by GBCA members.
Do Good Foods has designated Torcon as their construction manager for future projects across the country. Currently projects in Indiana and North Carolina are in design and planning stages. Each facility we build can process 60,000 tons of food annually, making a substantial, scalable impact to the global climate crisis.
