Crown Uniform & Linen Service eagerly awaits the opening of their new
facility in Brockton Massachusetts. Plant operations will begin moving
by the end of summer and a Ribbon Cutting ceremony is being planned for
the middle of October.
The new facility features a 94,000 square foot, state of the art,
commercial laundering plant that represents a $16 million dollar total
investment. 80,000 square feet has been dedicated the production and
warehousing sections while new office spaces will account for another
14,000 square feet.
Over the past year and a half considerable resources have been invested
into the 20 acre site that was once a local eyesore. Today the site has
been cleared, cleaned, and freshly landscaped. Great care has gone into
the design of the building and the grounds in order to make it
aesthetically pleasing to the surrounding community. Mature trees were
brought in to ensure both a pleasing visual barrier and a sound buffer.
There i an outdoor eating patio for employees surrounded by flower beds
that feature a genuine recovered millstone as a centerpiece. The
finishing touches should be in place by the time Crown holds their
official ribbon cutting ceremony.
Thoughtful design has been carried throughout the entire development
process, influencing the choice of building materials, the tiered
architectural design, streamlined internal layout, innovative high-tech
equipment, and integrated sustainability processes.
A rain water collection system will provide filtered rainwater to be
used throughout the laundry, as well as for landscaping and property
maintenance. Rainwater harvesting will further reduce water consumption,
while also alleviating excess storm water runoff. The roof has been
pre-wired for 55 square feet of solar panels which Crown will install in
the second phase of their Green Roof Plan (to begin in the near future).
Crown's long standing tradition of community involvement has already
prompted a partnering with several local Brockton organizations. Crown
is pleased to sponsor the Brockton Summerfest for a second year, and has
plans to work with the Brockton Public School System to help with much
needed school supplies.
