The Westland Distillery project in Sodo required expertise and precision typical of medical buildings and other highly complex projects, with mechanical systems capable of evacuating thousands of gallons of liquid in the event of a spill, and blast-protection elements in the event of an explosion.

The project called for several design features that used reclaimed or locally sourced wood. Entire vertically cut tree slabs were milled for the reception and tasting bar counters, and significant effort was spent locating and pricing materials, setting manufacturing tolerances and coordinating design and installation.

The project was completed in just over 10 months with no lost time.

“We are most pleased with Abbott Construction in the building of our distillery headquarters,” said Emerson Lamb, president of Westland Distillery.

“The work was performed on time, on budget and resulted in a world-class facility. We give to them our full and uncompromised support in seeking any recognition for their work on this project. It is certainly well-deserved.”
