Ware Malcomb, an award-winning international design firm, today announced that construction is complete on the Breakthru Beverage Group facility located at 922 Levels Road in Middletown, Delaware. Ware Malcomb provided architecture and interior design services for the 282,500 square foot distribution, packing and office space.
Breakthru Beverage Group is a leading North American distributor of the world’s top luxury and premium wine, spirits and beer brands. This new state-of-the-art facility will consolidate the company’s existing Delaware operations, increase efficiency and enhance customer service.
The facility features a welcoming lobby with double height windows, ceramic tile flooring and a unique light feature inspired by Breakthru Beverage Group’s logo. Additionally, the office includes 29,790 square feet of conference rooms, training rooms, break rooms and an experience center. The experience center, known as the “Alchemy Room”, serves as a collaboration area where events can be held and clients can taste new products. The room features built-in beer taps, custom walnut display shelves, solid surface countertops and luxury vinyl tile in a herringbone pattern.
The 36’ clear-height warehouse is a major distribution center with expanded loading areas, new pick modules, conveyors, in-line palletizers and includes a 29,350 square foot cold room for beverage storage.
A canopy and aluminum storefront are included on the building's exterior, which is made up of insulated precast concrete walls with form-liner accents. Backlit signage at the entry façade provides an eye-catching display at night.
“With this new facility, Breakthru will be even better able to serve the needs of all accounts,” said Edward M. Mayer II, Principal, Architecture, for Ware Malcomb. “We’re proud to have worked closely with them to design a facility that provides a welcoming environment for employees and clients, as well as operational excellence and flexibility for future growth”.
