Wales McLelland is proud of their partnership with Hopewell for the development of their East Richmond lands. The first Hopewell building, constructed in 2008, totaled 484,000 sq.ft. with Phase II, completed in 2009, totalling 443,000 sq.ft.. Both buildings were of similar construction using concrete tilt panels, structural steel and an EPDM roof membrane. The slab-on-grade is reinforced to accommodate a floor loading capacity of 800lb/ sq.ft.. The design of these distribution buildings accommodate large tractor trailers, multiple loading positions and trailer parking. The vision of a modern, efficient distribution warehouse park has been realized through the successful partnership of Hopewell Development Corporation and Wales McLelland Construction.
