Deardorff Family Farms

The Project

Deardorff Family Farms, a 75-year-old sustainable produce supplier, wanted to have its offices and crop-processing plant in one building. These operations had been spread out over three separate facilities. The building had to house sophisticated new technologies including automated systems to precisely regulate the cooling and sorting of all crops, plus equipment to monitor the automated irrigation system and energy use.

Designing with LEED in Mind

Deardorff Family Farms needed a new facility to increase its ability to cool, process, and pack its vast variety of organically farmed crops. The Deardorff family and design team set a goal to have this new facility achieve Gold status through the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED program. ADS Group Architecture & Development of Ventura, Calif., designed a state-of-the-art refrigerated processing plant and specified with Kingspan’s 300 Granitstone wall system and a KingZip insulated standing-seam roof system. The two products together deliver continuous insulation and an air/moisture barrier for the facility.


High Speed + High Performance

Because Kingspan has such a wide variety of products to offer, there was no need to use a different manufacturer for the office areas. Kingspan’s unique ability to provide for everything from architectural Designwall 2000 panels to high performance cold storage panel systems like 300 Series Granitstone wall panels and KingZip Standing Seam Roof aid in project coordination and scheduling.
