Kinco has completed several projects for Kimberly Clark including the 50,000 SF original facilities and the subsequent 164,000 SF additions for new offices, warehouse and manufacturing areas. Later projects included new employee parking, a 20,000 SF warehouse expansion, a 4,000 SF office addition and a 4,000 SF cafeteria addition.
In 2007, Kinco Constructors was awarded the contract for a 24,000 SF expansion at Kimberly-Clark Corporation based upon a design build format.
The project held a number of challenges due to the fast track schedule of 28 weeks from award to owner occupancy along with KC being a fully operational facility and our having to tie the 24,000 SF expansion into a major hub of their facility – all had to be done without disrupting daily production and activities. Besides the physical challenge of keeping the facility protected from the elements, a high level of coordination was required to prevent MEP upgrades and additions from disrupting technical elements of KC operations.
Other construction consisted of another 35,000 SF – heavy-duty concrete paving for tractor-trailer parking and truck dock expansions along with another 70,000 SF of temporary trailer parking.
An additional 40,220 SF of manufacturing and warehouse space was added in 2012 to give Kimberly Clark a total of 343,268 SF.
