GREELEY, CO-McWhinney Enterprises and the Neenan Co. have broken ground on a 32,000-sf Research & Development facility for Swift & Co. in Promontory Business Park in this northern Colorado city. Neenan is providing design and construction services to McWhinney Enterprises, developer of the project.

Formerly a division of ConAgra Foods, Swift is moving its R&D operation to its Greeley campus from Omaha in order to consolidate operations and better serve its customer base. The new facility, an expansion of Swift’s existing headquarters building, will support new product development, testing and customer interface.

McWhinney and Neenan provided similar services for Swift’s 102,000-sf headquarters, which was completed in 2001 and was named 2001 Office Project of the Year by the Burns School of Real Estate at the University of Denver.

Pat Huebner, VP of Research & Development for Swift, says that “McWhinney and Neenan understand our business and our facility requirements, and we look forward to another great project with them.”

Scheduled for completion by July 31, 2004, the two-story facility incorporates lab areas for research and development of new products and a state-of-the-art customer interface area, where customers can view potential new products and demonstrations in product preparation.The second floor will be dedicated to office and additional support space.

McWhinney is a local real estate developer headquartered in nearby Loveland, CO. The company’s primary geographic focus is Northern Colorado, where it has developed many projects including the 3,000-acre Centerra Master Planned Community, Factual Data Corp.’s national headquarters, Swift’s International headquarters, and the Poudre Valley Health System’s Harmony Road expansion in Fort Collins, CO.
