Facilities for the Food & Beverage Industry

Get a taste of Astron!

Are you looking for a building fully committed to safety and hygiene for your food and beverage company?

When adding manufacturing capacity, for example, through a new food and beverage unit, companies seek flexible and efficient production. Getting a facility up and running quickly with a tight budget is increasingly important. 

Your agri-food production plant needs to adapt to constant changes in the demands of the market or to new technologies, no matter if your area is beer and beverage, poultry, meat, fish, dairy or plant-based foods. Additionally, production is increasingly regulated through stringent standards on quality and safety, through environmental aspects and also tight and specific production norms spread across the world. Because of the sensitive nature of food processing and the risk of contamination, a food plant often requires clean manufacturing solutions and complex processes such as the installation of a hygienic, sterile processing system.

To meet your individual needs in the food & beverages sector, we offer functional and cost-effective buildings.

Our team will work closely with you to identify and assess different opportunities, technological solutions, ideas and alternatives within a scope that you define for the project. Astron expertise is vast across multiple food types in the design and construction of large and small food processing plants (Among others, Hipp, Bonduelle, Danone, Coca-Cola, Heineken, Nemiroff, etc.) . Our know-how: consulting, design, engineering and construction.

What are the objectives of an industrial building dedicated to the food & beverage industry?

>>  Food available to the public faster and at less expense

In order to meet this objective, we use a system approach and pre-engineered products that perfectly fit together. Usually it takes 10 – 12 weeks for the complete design and production of your building. Construction is carried out by certified erectors in 4 – 8 weeks, depending on the size and complexity of the project.

Along with making your food & beverage plant available faster and at less expense, our collaborative building strategy yields significant, tangible business results by reducing overall schedules by six to eight months compared to a standard design/bid/build process.

>> Quick build times and production efficiency

This is the advantage of our single-source supply from start to finish: Higher quality and a shorter construction schedule with a short design period, a short construction time in our plant, and a short assembly time with fast and certified erectors.

>> Control the overall cost of your facility: 

Once you have selected the building dimensions, frame type, wall, roof systems and accessories, the building cost is fixed and will stay the same over the project time-line. So you can rely on these figures and take care of other financial aspects of your project.

Design and construction costs for a typical industrial building account for only about 20-30% of the total costs over the life of a building, including operation and maintenance. They represent all the costs needed to run your business activity inside the building, like maintenance of the equipment and, of course, all heating, cooling, ventilation, lighting, etc. 

In the short run, you may consider the price of the building itself, but you should also consider the whole lifespan, including the total operating and maintenance costs.

>> Adopt a qualitative approach in the architectural design, reflecting your brand image

The production facility can present a positive and enhancing image of your company, by becoming an object compatible with your environment.

The choice of its architecture can be a break with what already exists, instead accentuating its singularity with a marked architectural design or integrating harmoniously with its environment. 

Favouring the construction of a more inclusive society, working for the emergence of responsible sustainable buildings for all ... Faced with current social, society and environmental challenges, we can work with you to find efficient and innovative solutions for sustainable production, and control the impact of your project on the environment.

Astron is committed to respect the human rights of employees, suppliers and customers, to protect the environment, but also to take solidarity actions. Our CSR approach is integrated in all our activities.

We have worked with a multitude of food & beverage processing companies from water to organic baby food, and alcohol, and we have expertise in creating hygienic, optimized buildings that work. Contact one of our food & beverage construction experts!

  • Adopt an environmentally responsible approach + RSE
    The agri-food production unit can be part of an overall policy to control environmental impacts. For example the installation of a photovoltaic plant can be planned. Your building can be energy autonomous, i.e. produce as much electricity as it consumes, or even produce positive energy.


    The industrial building that best adapts to your needs

    # Ingenious design
    Your project should start long before the construction phase. Our team provides you with different variants of building solutions, considering structural optimization, energy efficiency, natural lighting and minimized construction cost, using 3D models and BIM. Our design & build approach is reinforced by our pragmatic approach based on our experience as engineers, manufacturer and assembler in terms of functionalities and cost control. All Astron products are tailor-made, based on proven pre-engineered solutions worked out within the large group of 150 engineers in 8 European design offices.

    # Evolving the design
    When you start thinking about a new building, you usually have many ideas in your head – dreams, needs, concerns. At Astron we help you to turn your ideas into reality – within a fixed timeframe and a fixed budget. We translate your functional and regulatory requirements into fluid space. You validate each phase and remain the decision-maker for the proposed options: ergonomics, structure, choice of materials.

    # Variable shape
    Adapt your building to any type of environments. Shape, climatic & atmospheric conditions, soil & seismic characteristics, together we will find the best configuration to contribute to the profitability of your project.

    # Future extensions
    Your building can be designed to allow for future modifications to best accompany the development of your company, without interrupting your operations: an extension, photovoltaic installation, future cranes …or mutability.

Energy saving from design to operation

# From A to Z
At Astron we strive to meet all your construction needs with attention to sustainability, providing a simplified and more environmentally friendly way to complete your construction project in every aspect of our business. Astron was one of the first players on the market to provide economical solutions for a «nearly zero-energy building» NZEB for industrial applications.

# Steel promotes sustainability
Because steel building systems start with recycled steel today and can be recycled at the end of their useful lives, systems construction outperforms all other forms of construction for life cycle analysis and least material impact on the environment.

# Certified approach
Astron is assessed by EcoVadis, an international network in the field of sustainability. The assessment focuses on global supply chains, i.e. networks of relationships between production, distribution and procurement. As an example, our optimised use of raw materials and the high recycling rate were rated very positively. The energy optimisation of the Astron buildings and the support of LEED and BREAM certificates were also honoured accordingly. The result is an energy-efficient building that is completed faster, with the highest quality and lowest risks.
