Pillar Consulting Group combines a strong background of experience in building construction, plant infrastructure, and engineering to provide industrial facilities with access to critical expertise on-demand.

We have extensive experience in industrial plants and have a unique appreciation for the needs of facility owners, maintenance managers and plant engineers. Our expertise includes fire and life-safety code review studies and planning; building and facilities layout and design; retrofit and addition to existing facilities where shutdowns are difficult or impossible; building projects where the role of equipment and processes dominate the functional requirements; and small projects that are every bit as important as larger capital improvements.

No matter the size of your industrial project, we can help to make it successful. We are experienced and comfortable acting as the lead project consultant, coordinating the efforts of multiple, specialty, sub-consultants and managing the overall project effort, or acting in a more limited and focused role as a source of technical expertise to the industrial client’s existing team.

Western Warehouse

With over 135,000 square feet of area, this 600 foot long warehouse building required a building expansion joint to deal with the thermal effects of such a large structure. Multiple loading docks, wide bay spacing and energy efficient design elements create a highly efficient storage and distribution facility.

Hazardous Use Industrial Building

A severely corrosive atmosphere made precast concrete construction the optimum choice for this high-bay building, which also houses a 10-ton overhead bridge crane. Tight building pad area constraints were overcome through the use of a retaining wall under one wall of the building.

PCT Loading Dock, Corvallis

A few years after designing a major addition for this industrial client, they decided to bring us back to add a loading dock. Space was tight in the parking lot for truck maneuvering, but we were able to enclose the existing shipping and receiving area, and add this covered loading dock to the end of the building.
