The $10 million Shinmei Co. Ltd. rice bun factory is located in the heart of California’s rice-growing region in West Sacramento. Starting with a single production line and with the capacity to make 6,000 buns per hour, the Kobe, Japan-based company has additional space and land in the business park to add two more lines to this facility’s plant, potentially making up to 300 million buns per year. The 28,000-SF building complex covers six acres of the 43,000-SF Southport Business Park and includes a 16,000-SF tilt-up manufacturing building, a 5,500-SF, steel-framed freezer warehouse building and a 6,500-SF, reinforced masonry office building. Miyamoto was the prime design consultant for this highly specialized facility, with subconsultants M. Okamoto & Associates and Glumac for architectural and MEP design services, respectively. The factory implements state-of-the-art cooking and processing equipment that has never been used in the United States, which Shinmei imported from Japan.
