Project Overview: Papé Medford, OR - JB STEEL®

Client's Requirement

The client, Papé, required a distinctive and large facility to effectively separate material handling operations from agricultural functions. This division was vital to streamline their processes and enhance operational efficiency.

Our Innovative Solution

Leveraging our expertise from prior expansions of Papé's existing buildings, JB STEEL® crafted a sophisticated program. This program enabled the segregation of various operations, allowing them to function independently yet cohesively. Our approach involved keeping all planning and development in-house, which ensured a streamlined and cohesive process from start to finish.
