Unique Challenges

To meet General Mills’ requirements for stringent cleanliness and air quality standards, Raymond provides recommendations involving designing roof systems and construction materials best suited to meet the owner’s hygienic standards.

As Raymond has supported this location for many years, we aim to be a resource to new plant management during personnel transitions. Our team works hard to keep this from creating any communication gaps or potential operational issues. Raymond takes a proactive approach to staying in communication by following up with the point of contact (POC) to ensure they have received our reports. Our team also schedules meetings with any new POCs to clarify our role on the project and what we require to successfully perform our duties.

Our Value Add

Raymond maintains responsiveness and assures timely delivery of designs and specifications. This has resulted in a seamless transition between the construction management and quality assurance phases for each project.

With our team’s tracking and providing the status of roof conditions, the owner can make better decisions while planning their yearly budget. After establishing our drone program, Raymond performs drone infrared surveys of the General Mills facilities. By using our drones, our team can perform infrared surveys significantly faster and with greater detail than we had previously performed on foot.
