This project was for a 20,700 sq.ft. addition to an existing 51,638 sq.ft. distribution warehouse with ancillary offices. The pre-existing building was built in 1993 with a future addition anticipated, designed and allowed for at that time. This addition was created for storage and warehouse use and included three loading docks with levellers. The structure is of concrete tilt-up construction with structural steel framing to match the existing building. Preloading and site preparation were required to raise the grade of the intended footprint area to match the existing warehouse elevation.
