Hurd Construction Management is making waves in the Food and Beverage industry through its newest project with the Quick Service Restaurant concept, Human Bean.  

Hurd Construction Management is acting as Construction Manager as Advisor and Owner’s Representative for the new site development of the proposed quick-serve drive-through coffee shop, located on Blanding Blvd, which will also be capitalizing on a modular delivery method. In this role, HCM is responsible for navigating development approval with the local authorities and agencies having jurisdiction, modular engineering and design, manufacturing quality control, site development and work, as well as developing and implementing the overall project schedule and budgets. This is done through a working relationship with local jurisdiction authorities like Clay County Economic Development, Clay County Building Department, FDOT and the St. Johns River Water Management District.

HCM will also manage setting up utilities, landscaping, stormwater management for the drive-through coffee shop, as well as establishing suitable parking for vehicular traffic and creating aprons that transition from Blanding Blvd. to the private property.

The pre-construction schedule is expected to take approximately 5 months. To fast-track the production timeline and make better use of the owner’s budget, HCM is using modular construction to pre-fabricate the building off site. The goal is to open the location and generate revenue up to 40% sooner than traditional construction techniques.

About Human Bean

With a passion for creating happy people and our love of coffee, we opened our first drive-thru espresso stand in Ashland Oregon in 1998. The demand for convenient, quality coffee & espresso grew and soon after opening our original location in Ashland, we expanded to surrounding cities in Southern Oregon. The Human Bean quickly established a reputation for having friendly and experienced baristas and offering the highest quality ingredients.

The Human Bean was founded in 1998 with a commitment to developing the very best coffee drive-thru in Southern Oregon. Early success led to franchising the brand and system in 2002. The Human Bean brand currently has over 200 locations open or under development in 23 states.
