Riverbend Meats Project

Interstates provided a full array of solutions to construct a greenfield meat processing plant for Riverbend Meats in Idaho Falls, ID. The initial contract was for our construction services only. As the project progressed, we solved scope gaps by pulling in additional disciplines such as operational technology (OT), control automation and design, instrumentation, control and electrical engineering, and arc flash studies.

Key Scope Components

  • Worked closely with the equipment vendor to reverse engineer their typical control installation.
  • Discovered that redundancy and hard-wiring would be the best approach.
  • Held meetings with our vendors and the client to stay on top of supply chain delays and to better understand the risk.
  • Navigated overall schedule problems by being flexible and anticipating potential changes.
