Jarmel Kizel’s team of architects and engineers is currently engaged in the design of an expansion building at Tribeca Oven’s existing 48,000-square-foot production bakery located at 447 Gotham Parkway in Carlstadt, New Jersey. Tribeca Oven specializes in baking and distributing Par-Baked Breads to specialty food distributors and fine stores across the country; and in 2004, moved its operations from Brooklyn, New York, to this facility in Carlstadt. As demand for its product rapidly increased Tribeca realized its need for a larger, better equipped production facility, and leased the adjacent 115,000-square-foot warehouse building, which is connected via two enclosed passageways. It will expand its operations into this facility and also occupy the first three northern bays of the building as a new production bakery. There is also a design for a small office facility in this expansion building. Jarmel Kizel is assisting with support and coordination from a code evaluation standpoint for the production equipment, which was selected by Tribeca’s in-house staff. Jarmel Kizel is also designing roughing for the equipment—gas, water, electric and structural reinforcing—and is responsible for review shop drawings for the equipment installation. Jarmel Kizel also is responsible for confirming that the electrical design for the equipment is in accordance with the National Electrical Code (NEC). Jarmel Kizel also is designing footing supports for equipment foundations and confirming that all vendor-supplied equipment will fit within the facility and designated structures, prior to delivery to the site.
Unique Project Aspects:
Jarmel Kizel is designing and specifying the water treatment system, as well as designing a steam generator that will be piped to various pieces of equipment used in the bread baking process.
