A 105,000 sq ft receiving and distribution center. This facility was constructed on a highly accelerated schedule. This design-build project demanded tight coordination and strong Team collaboration/communication.
A load bearing, site-cast, tilt-up concrete panel envelope system was employed for its speed of construction and durability. The building shell was completed in 12 weeks. All concrete panels were formed, cast and tilted in-house by Nichols Construction Team.
The building’s structure was designed to accommodate FedEx Ground’s proprietary conveyance and distribution equipment. Bay spacing and clear heights were fully integrated. Very specific receive/loading flows were accomplished on a tight site.
