Lage Orchards, a large privately-owned apple and pear orchard and cold-storage facility located in Hood River, was established in 1876 and employees over 50 people in the region. Lage contracted to Bell Design Company to design and build an extensive support structure for a new steel condenser unit, a critical component of their onsite freezer preservation operations.

The additional support demanded by the immense weight required engineering an all-steel framework supported by custom designed steel legs which needed to be constructed over an existing exterior CMU wall at one end, and hung off of a concrete wall located at the other end of the building.

To me, business isn't about wearing suits or pleasing stockholders. It's about being true to yourself, your ideas and focusing on the essentials.
