The Value of Working with a Fully Integrated Firm for Your Next Food or Beverage Project

A fully integrated firm is one that offers process design, building and infrastructure design, and construction services all with in-house resources. Compare this with traditional methods that involve contracting a variety of vendors to handle these different elements of your project. Partnering with an integrated firm can benefit your next food or beverage project in a variety of ways.

The Benefits of Working with a Fully Integrated Firm

In my opinion, the 3 major benefits to working with a fully integrated firm are:

  1. Saves money
  2. Increases speed to market
  3. Improves food safety of the facility

The food and beverage industry is fast-paced and is constantly changing. Working with an integrated firm enables you to quickly adapt to sudden changes in your project timeline, because all the disciplines needed to make a successful shift are under one roof.

Plus, having a fully integrated firm on your side streamlines communication compared to working with a variety of contractors. Since all the moving parts of your project are being handled by one team, the chances for miscommunication are much less.
