New Food Processing Facility & Corporate Headquarters
Extending our long relationship with Chacharone Properties, RP Masiello was engaged as the design/build general contractor for a new Table Talk Pies facility. The 145,000 sq. ft. building is a combination corporate headquarters, bakery and distribution facility. It houses four production lines, with automated processes for mixing, shaping, baking, cooling, flash-freezing and packaging the iconic desert-size pies.
The building is a steel frame structure clad in masonry and metal panels. The design includes office space, a loading dock, heavy-grade utilities, and an extensive corrosion-proof drainage system to handle the intensive cleaning regimen that maintains sanitary conditions for food preparation and processing.
New Food Processing Facility
As Table Talk continued to grow, Chacharone Properties once again, tapped RP Masiello to meet an aggressive schedule for construction of another high-tech industrial scale baking center. The 52,000 sq. ft. facility has two production lines, with automated processes for mixing, shaping, baking, cooling, flash-freezing and packaging. It’s capable of making 120 million four-inch pies a year. Like the Gardner Street location, this building is laced with an extensive corrosion-proof drainage system to handle the intensive cleaning regimen.
To accommodate the new building footprint, we had to oversee the decommissioning of a city street, relocating the utilities, water and sewer systems. The new building is located in the South Worcester Industrial Park, on the former site of Standard Foundry, which was once a major employer for the region but had been vacant for years. Building the Table Talk Pies facility there helped the company grow, create new jobs and revitalize a hard-hit area of the city.
RP Masiello has been collaboratively developing commercial and industrial buildings with Chacharone Properties since 1984.
