manufacturing plant,
Pawtucket, RI

Pawtucket, RI It was shovels-in-the-ground again for corrugated packaging giant Rand-Whitney just months after opening their new manufacturing plant in N.H. PROCON is the designer and builder for the project expansion. This will be the second back-to-back partnership between the two companies since completion of the 118,600 s/f Dover, N.H. facility in July, 2016. 

Plans call for a 65,000 s/f addition to the existing warehouse located at 455 Narragansett Park Dr. The one-story warehouse expansion includes the addition of a 425 s/f conference room, 800 s/f cafeteria and a 483 s/f driver’s office. Upon completion, the combined expansion and existing building will total a 150,000 s/f space and will function as a storage facility for the company’s manufacturing materials.

The expansion project began in September 2016 with preliminary site work to clear the area and bring it to grade. Current work includes the installation of underground utilities concurrent with foundation placement. Steel erection will begin in mid-December with an expected completion by June.
