Phase I of the project entailed a 20,000 square-foot renovation of an existing warehouse, transforming it into a complex and detailed print shop containing all of their printing equipment and plenty of room for support staff office spaces. Upgrades to all MEP and electrical systems were also completed as well as a new mezzanine level. All of Phase I was built on the slab at grade level and completed while Plastic Enterprises continued daily production operations.
Five years later, Phase II of the project commenced and included the construction of a new 110,000 square foot warehouse and distribution center. During the design and preconstruction process, McCownGordon provided the owner and architect several structural steel options, which allowed the owner to select the system with the best value for the budget.
The finished building is clad with a combination of architectural precast concrete and metal wall panels. An overhaul of the MEP system was completed to serve part of the existing facility, new construction and future production support. The warehouse includes high-bay and high-efficiency racking and a warehouse management system and wire guidance for fork traffic, storage and delivery.
