Processing Plant Construction & Improvement Services
Grow your business by building a better, faster, and safer processing or conditioning plant.
What's unique about plant construction?
Building a processing or conditioning plant for seed, grain, food, and animal feed requires a construction team with specialized skills and knowledge. General contractors often lack the agricultural processing and conditioning knowledge to construct a facility that will meet your process flow demands and achieve optimal efficiency and product quality.
Our Consultative Approach to Agricultural Plant Construction
At Bratney we approach your project by first creating a custom design of your facility based on your material types and plant requirements; engineering the most efficient process flow and plant design from cleaning to packaging commodities. Then we get to constructing your facility, installing your equipment, and managing the entire project for you. We utilize new technologies and we’re constantly refining our techniques to build better, faster, and safer plants that will help you achieve your business goals.
