Dole Packaged Foods
Fullmer Construction completed an 81,444 square foot tenant improvement for Dole Packaged Foods. Located in Building C of the Westlake Park Place corporate office building complex in Westlake Village, this building offers many state-of-the-art features for its tenant. Some of these offerings include 4 large conference rooms, 8 small conference rooms, 3 test kitchens, 2 food labs, a prop room, production room, as well as a classroom-style training room and large auditorium, complete with a custom pineapple-printed tile ceiling. Each conference room and the auditorium are complete with multiple large touch-screen TV’s, as well as electronic shades to let the daylight in or out at the push of a button.
Additionally, there is a UPS 1-hour battery backup system that supports Dole’s worldwide IT operations in the event of a power failure, as well as a 300 kW backup generator. The FM200 fire suppression system would enable gas to put out a fire before using sprinklers, thus saving Dole’s equipment from any water damage. Finally, intricate security measures were intertwined into the operations system, including cameras, controlled access doors with keycard entry, and secured parking complete with gates and badge entrance – the only secured parking of its kind in the park.
Fullmer is proud that even though this was a very involved project, the completion deadline was still able to be met. Dole moved in at the beginning of February, and we believe they will be extremely happy with their new corporate headquarters.
