Commercial Laundry Design
DESIGN & CONSTRUCTION
Western State Design has designed, developed, and equipped state-of-the-art commercial and industrial laundry installations throughout the world. Our extensive knowledge of the commercial laundry industry, coupled with many years of experience in designing and constructing industrial laundry facilities, ensures that our clients’ projects go from concept to completion without surprises!
Whether your project is new construction, a renovation, an expansion, or a retooling, WSD's laundry consultants will work with you from concept design through equipment start-up to ensure that not only is the construction complete, but that the plant is operational. Over the years, WSD has developed a construction process that meets the project budget and provides value engineering resulting in on-time success.
Unlike other construction firms that design and construct all types of industrial buildings, WSD only builds laundries. Additionally, we only consider those projects which are a good match for our skilled and experienced team. The WSD Team includes experienced project managers, mechanical, plumbing and electrical (MP&E) subcontractors, and laundry operators. Consequently, our laundries are built with component systems that meet the specific needs of the operator, as well as maximize production, minimize floor space, conserve energy and water usage, and deliver overall value. In addition, our experienced team knows how to retool your plant while you continue to operate - saving you valuable downtime.
