Design, construction complete on Five Crowns Marketing storage facility

San Diego-based KMA Architecture & Engineering said it has completed construction on a 47,000-square-foot storage facility for Five Crowns Marketing. KMA partnered with Swinerton Builders on the design-build project.

The project involved transforming an existing prefabricated warehouse space into a single-story, energy-efficient facility that will house produce. The building will include 18 cooling tunnels and will hold approximately 70,000 cartons of produce like romaine lettuce, cauliflower, broccoli, asparagus, sweet corn and various melons.

Also involved on the project were McParlane Engineering, mechanical and plumbing; and Michael Wall Engineering, electrical.

Five Crowns Marketing has also committed to keeping the project environmentally friendly and will cover the roof of the new facility with photovoltaic panels in the near future.

Five Crowns Marketing grows, packs and ships fresh fruits and vegetables from its headquarters in Brawley, Calif.
