Construction of 55,000 square-foot dry storage facility and connecting corridor completed on time, on budget
MILWAUKEE – The Milwaukee office of Opus Development Corporation (Opus) announced today the completion of a 55,000-square-foot dry storage facility and connecting corridor on the site of the fire-damaged Patrick Cudahy, Inc. plant.
“This new, updated facility continues Patrick Cudahy’s reinvestment in the plant following the 2009 fire,” said Julie Ledger, vice president and general manager of Opus Development Corporation’s Milwaukee Office. “The facility will allow Patrick Cudahy to be even more competitive by providing additional space for operational components of the headquarters.”
Patrick Cudahy, the nation’s largest meat-packing plant, was severely damaged in a fire that took place in July 2009. Although many of the buildings within the Patrick Cudahy campus were salvaged, a major section of the plant required complete demolition and rebuilding. Patrick Cudahy began working with Opus beginning in July 2009 to assess the structural damage and to assist with the implementation of interim building solutions.
Opus Development Corporation is one of the region’s leading full-service real estate development and design-build firms. Recent notable projects completed by the Milwaukee office include Waukesha’s Shoppes at Fox River, The Honey Creek Corporate Center, multiple buildings at Marquette University, including the new College of Engineering and Law School, Northwestern Mutual’s Franklin Campus and Oakwood Crossing Business Center in Oak Creek.
