Value Delivered

Shambaugh provided single-source design-build services on a 325,000-square- foot pork processing facility for Indiana Packers Corporation.

The 14-month project was fast-tracked on a highly efficient work schedule which allowed Indiana Packers to rapidly expand its production operations to meet demand.

Shambaugh also performed extensive in-house prefabrication services for additional efficiency and cost-savings.

Client Objectives

Indiana Packers needed a design-build team to construct a new state-of-the-art processing facility in Delphi, IN. The management at Indiana Packers required a team with the capabilities to offer single-source design and construction of the facility as well as diligent construction management in order to meet a strict deadline.


This new construction project included the design and installation of over 30 miles of mechanical, fire protection, and ammonia refrigeration piping along with 350 miles of electrical wiring.

In-house prefabrication services were performed for the majority of the plant’s refrigeration and a significant portion of its utilities. Shambaugh installed 300 pieces of process equipment and 2,400 tons of refrigeration including 80 rooftop units which were set in place by helicopter.

During this project, Shambaugh delivered the following:

  • Consulting services
