Bottle Line 36
After the success of the Bottle Line 34 projects, S. M. Wilson & Co. was awarded another high-profile project, Bottle Line 36 Packer/ Conveyor Line modification project in the basement of the St. Louis Brewery – Bevo facility. Due to the fact that the Bottle Line 36 project required the existing bottle line to completely shutdown for a period, a multi-phase construction schedule was developed in order to minimize production downtime. Team pre-planning and communication was also key in the success of this project.
The project encompassed the retrofit of a portion of the existing bottle line and the construction of a new upgraded line. The project included the demolition and replacement of a 45,000 SF, six-inch slab with a new multi-grid pitched slab and the assembly and installation of the associated equipment. The project was completed two weeks ahead of schedule.
