This state-of-the-art 140,000 SF wine and spirits distribution center houses a large temperature controlled area, with an enclosed truck dock, an automated conveyor system and bar code information system. The 35,200 SF office area features a mezzanine that overlooks the warehouse area. The steel framed building has concrete tilt-up wall panels.
The 224,500 SF expansion to the north and east of the existing facility includes additional storage space, receiving offices, shipping offices, as well as, new conveyors and coolers.
There are 16 new standard height docks plus two small truck docks on the east elevation. On the west elevation 8 docks were added to their 8 existing docks making a total of 16. The west portion of the new addition is enhanced by a covered drive. Side loading trucks will drive inside the building to get loaded.
The conventional steel frame with roof joist structure is concealed with tilt up concrete wall panels 40’ in height, 9-1/4” thick and a membrane roof.
The entire new addition space is heated by AHU with gas furnace and cooled with a two pipe chilled water system and protected by a new ESFR fire protection system.
