Briohn designed and constructed this state-of-the-art, 50,000 SF tea processing facility located in Milwaukee’s Menomonee Valley. Before the building could be erected, this brownfield site required the removal of contaminated soils and surcharge of the imported soil.
We began construction of this project in the winter of 2014 and completed the building in the summer of 2014. The facility includes separate herbal tea fulfilment and manufacturing areas with precise climate controlled systems. The dynamic HVAC system was installed to control the precise stabilization of temperature and humidity throughout the tea production areas and to eliminate the aroma transfers between the different environments. The facility includes a modern, open office space with high volume ceilings and stained concrete floors, creating the environment that the Rishi founders wanted for their team. By moving into this new facility, Rishi Tea was able to greatly increase its production capability in the tea market while improving its rigorous Organic Food quality standards.
