In order to meet our SQF certification, we are in need of doing some construction in our plant, mostly in personnel areas. But before spending $$$ on our remodel, I wanted to get the opinions from some other brains to make sure I'm not making planning mistake that wouldn't pass our audit.
I've attached the floor plans for review.
A little about what we do: We are a low risk chocolate manufacturer (re-melt into confectionery) that makes handmade bark and hot chocolate products. We are in a building that houses other businesses, so all of our external doors enter into a communal hallway. Because of this it, doesn't offer a lot of external rearrangement of doors and walls, so we are trying to make it work. Our raw to finished goods is pretty good, except for the fact that we only have one warehouse door to bring in ingredients and out finished goods. We also can not move the bottom two bathrooms.
Any suggestions or comments welcome.
