Bimbo Bakeries, USA

Plymouth Township, Montgomery County, PA

Nave Newell worked with the owner and the developer to convert a portion of the 20-acre former Stroehmann Bread bakery site. This 10-acre portion of the property had been unused and mostly wooded. The proposed site improvements included a new 66,500 sf industrial warehouse and distribution center for Bimbo Bakeries, USA, with office space, parking, and a truck fueling station.

Due to restrictions on infiltration, slow-release underground stormwater detention basins and constructed filters were used to mitigate the changes to the site’s hydrology after construction. A new driveway to County-owned Academy Drive was designed to allow for potential future connections to adjacent parcels, as well as to accommodate an extension of Academy Drive through the site.

Nave Newell’s work included securing preliminary/final land development approval from Plymouth Township and coordinating improvements with Montgomery County and utility providers. We also provided construction stakeout and administration services. This project was completed and opened in June 2021.
