Brewers spend significant resources developing their passion for their craft but often overlook the building and engineering infrastructure that supports them. One may have the best designed brewery system, but poor space planning and a building lacking the necessary utilities can lead to significant downtime, loss of productivity and unhappy clientele. While cost control is applicable to all types of construction, performing the proper pre-purchase due diligence, engineering review and construction monitoring for a brewery location is important to a business continuity plan. Learn from real-world examples about potential issues and vulnerabilities that plague facilities during design and construction and the methodology used to identify them before problems arise. Learn the questions to ask to better assess building infrastructure and understand how the implementation of sometimes simple concepts can reduce potential inefficiencies and foster long-term growth.
