Okanagan Spirits Distillery
MSC designed, supplied and erected a pre-engineered steel building for Okanagan Spirits Craft Distillery, one of the oldest distilleries in Western Canada that uses Okanagan-grown fruit to craft more than 25 internationally awarded spirits.
The 16,720 sq. ft. steel structure in Vernon, BC has been built as an addition to an existing storage building, which MSC helped retrofit to connect it with the new building.
Led by MSC owner Steve Ivanitz and assisted by consultant Rob Penny, MSC worked closely with Tyler Dyck (Okanagan Spirits CEO) in making sure all specifications and requirements for the building were met before any construction began.
With the main purpose of the building being storage, the 110-by-152 ft. structure has a 25-foot roof clearance inside that allows for three pallets to be stacked atop one another, while center row columns made from steel anchored to cement provide a wide-open space. The building also features custom steel building touches such as a covered loading bay, which features a roof and open walls. MSC also did some roof work on the existing building so that it matched with the new building. The R20-rated insulated building also features a fire rated end wall.

"We decided to have MSC help design and install the 16,000sq/ft addition to our existing storage facility in Vernon for three very important reasons: 1. They were a local Canadian company with a base right here in the Okanagan Valley, 2. They were extremely prompt and professional on answering any of our questions, and also in coming up with solutions to logistical and structural issues, and 3. They were honest and every aspect of what they did or represented was done with the highest standards of integrity.
The team at MSC worked seamlessly with our contractor and with myself, and helped enable our project to hit all building timelines and expectations without a glitch. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone who is thinking of going the metal structure route for their building...You will not be disappointed".
