“PRECISE TEMPERATURE CONTROL AND SPECIALIZED SAFETY MEASURES…”
A 26,000 square foot facility housing both filled and empty bourbon barrels, along with cisterns, the Maker’s Mark regauge building was an exciting project for Kerr-Greulich Engineers Inc. to take on. The primary intent of this building was facilitating the process of recovering additional alcohol from previously used empty bourbon barrels – a process that requires precise temperature control and specialized safety measures. The Maker’s Mark regauge building included a critically important ventilation design to ensure manageable levels of vapors from ethanol and carbon monoxide for occupant safety. Areas for barrel storage, dumping, proofing, and blending were also included in the design.
- Specialized temperature control implemented for the unique alcohol recovery process
- Hazardous pollutant vapors were monitored and mitigated for safety
- ESFR sprinkler system for barrel storage area
- Cisterns for blending barrels and adjusting proof of the product
