Algoma Orchards Phase 3

Project Details

In 2015 this apple processing facility expanded by more than 40,000 square feet to allow for additional sorting, packing and juice bottling capacity for the ‘growing’ company.

Algoma Orchards required a construction solution that eliminated bulky interior columns, saved on heating/cooling expenses, and was extremely durable to resist the agricultural demands of the 24/7 facility.

Tilt-up construction through Tilt Wall Ontario was chosen for its ability to quickly erect load-bearing panels (reducing bulky interior columns) and insulate exterior panels to ensure better airflow and reduce operating costs. Exterior tilt-up panels were finished with paint and cultured stone for a comforting exterior to welcome customers to buy directly from their facility. The much larger space also allowed Algoma Orchards to increase its storage capacity to 1,000,000 bushels of apples, from more than 1,600 acres of orchards!
