When Peco Foods, one of the leading suppliers of poultry products in the United States, decided to expand their fully integrated operation in Pocahontas, Arkansas, they turned to C.R. Crawford Construction. The projects successfully completed by C.R. Crawford include a hatchery, protein recovery facility, live office, waste recovery building, and a truck stop. Total area constructed is in excess of 103,000 square feet. The larger buildings were constructed using a combination of structural steel and tilt-up pre-cast concrete panels.
C.R. Crawford Construction also successfully completed a new hatchery at Peco’s Heavener, Oklahoma. The hatchery contains more than 19,000 square feet, was also constructed using pre-cast concrete panels, and allowed Peco to significantly increase capacity at their Heavener operations.
