HB Reese Candy Company selected Wickersham Construction to be the Design/Build contractor for their new dock addition at their Reese’s plant in Hershey, PA. The purpose of the project was to create a temperature-controlled enclosed dock for Reese’s new sugar-free chocolate delivery trucks.
Construction included a Nucor pre-engineered metal building system with insulated metal wall panels that rested on an exposed 2 foot concrete protection curb. We installed a rolling hoist to be used as a tie-off safety feature for delivery drivers to maneuver on top of the trucks.
Mechanical, electrical, plumbing and sprinkler systems were installed in the new addition and tied into the existing plant without disrupting ongoing production.
