Stellar To Present Overview Of Design-Build Approach At PROCESS EXPO 2011

Jacksonville, FL: Stellar, a construction, design, engineering and mechanical services firm, is part of a distinguished line-up of industry experts presenting at PROCESS EXPO 2011. The session, titled "An Integrated Approach to Process Facility Design, Engineering, and Construction," will take place Nov. 3 from 2:30 to 3:30pm in the Siemens Theater at Chicago's McCormick Place.

This year's PROCESS EXPO, the food industry tradeshow sponsored by the Food Processing Suppliers Association (FPSA), has had an unprecedented response to its educational programs, with large numbers of attendees registering early for the sessions. In designing the programs, organizers asked the industry's top experts to address the most critical issues facing food and beverage manufacturers. 

Stellar is widely recognized as an expert in the design-build approach to developing food and beverage manufacturing facilities. Construction industry trade publication Engineering News-Record repeatedly recognizes the company as the number-one design-build firm serving food and beverage processors. 

Presenters Greg Camp and Gerry Gomolka will discuss the activities involved at each stage of the design-build work cycle, including the deliverables for the owner, supplier and design-build firm. Camp and Gomolka will also review the differences between the traditional approach and the design-build approach, team roles and responsibilities, communication processes and other related topics. 

Camp, a director of business development with Stellar, has more than 18 years of experience in the food and beverage industry. Prior to joining Stellar in 2008, he held executive positions overseeing national and key accounts for process suppliers including Poly-Clip System, Bridge Machine Company and Materials Transportation Company. He is a member of the International Institute of Ammonia Refrigeration and the FPSA, currently serving on the Meat Industry Suppliers Alliance Counsel's Board of Directors. 

A 38-year veteran of the food and beverage industry, Gomolka has held roles in engineering, maintenance and operations. Before joining Stellar in 2004 as vice president of process engineering, Gomolka held management positions with Best Foods-CPC International, Alfa Laval Food and Dairy, Nestlé and Rich Products. He is a member of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers, American Oil Chemist Society and the American Society of Baking. At Stellar, Gomolka co-developed an integrated approach to building and process design to enhance project schedules and reduce project costs.
