Woburn, MA – Dacon recently completed construction on a 10,100sf cold storage expansion project for Mama Rosie’s, a producer of specialty frozen pasta products on State Street. The expansion included construction of 3,200sf of freezer storage, a 3,700sf refrigerated dock, and 3,200sf of dry storage.
Dacon, with the assistance of real estate professional Paul Delaney of Cresa Boston, helped Mama Rosie’s with the site selection and building evaluation process to locate a site that would accommodate future expansion plans. Dacon’s design-build construction management team expanded the facility’s finished product storage capacity and performed renovations to the existing building to facilitate future manufacturing operations expansions.
The freezer features an underground glycol warming system designed to prevent heaving of the ground beneath the concrete slab. The building features a 40-ft. clear height at the storage sections and the exterior walls were constructed with 5-inch insulated composite metal wall panel.
Mama Rosie’s premium products are manufactured on machines that simulate authentic hand-rolled pasta. Other processes for manufacturing ravioli dough include extrusion, which strips the dough of its light, delicate textures and home-style taste.
Mama Rosie’s is headquartered in Charlestown.
