Minute Maid

Minute Maid Corporate Facility | Auburndale , Florida

The Minute Maid Corporation, a division of Coca-Cola, constructed a 620,000
square foot manufacturing facility situated on 60 acres at a cost of $130
million in Auburndale, Florida. This facility marked Minute Maid’s return to
Florida after having left the state due to excessively cold weather in the
1980’s. Including all phases, this plant contains one million square feet with
300 employees. This project was on an accelerated design, permitting and
construction schedule to meet the production deadline for their “Simply
Orange” brand. ECON, as the design and permitting engineer, was responsible
for boundary and topographical surveys, local and state site permitting,
off-site road improvements, turn lanes, intersection signalization, coordination
of utilities and road work between the City of Auburndale, Polk County,
Minute Maid and the General Contractor.
