Multi-Phase Project

Multiple Projects, One Trusted Developer

Beginning in 2017, GWL Realty Advisors brought on Wales McLelland to design and build three projects as part of their tier-1 distribution centre campus. Delta iPort is on 57 acres of land within a 330-acre industrial business park and consists of two distribution centres for a lease—totalling more than 935,000 sq. ft. Currently, Wales McLelland has finished two 450,000 sq. ft. buildings and is completing an additional tenant outfit for an Amazon fulfillment centre. The project will conclude in 2020.

Delta iPort Building 1

Wales McLelland's first scope of work included the initial site preparation, which consisted of bringing in roughly 1.2 million cubic yards of structural fill and preload material. The building contained 453,620 sq. ft. of state-of-the-art features, including a 36-foot clear height, LED warehouse lighting on motion sensors, a 60-foot staging bay, a 182-foot secured loading court, plus 80 dock doors and four drive-in doors.

Delta iPort Building 2

As a joint venture between Wales McLelland and TFN, Delta iPort Building 2 is the second project being completed on the Tsawwassen First Nations (TFN) land. The project is a 483,000 sq. ft. warehouse/distribution facility, designed for potential multi-tenant use. It features a 36-foot clear height, which will allow for increased racking levels for future tenants. The building is also equipped with 82 dock doors, complete with airbag dock levellers and four-grade access doors. The project is slated for spring 2020 completion.

Amazon Fulfillment Warehouse

The third and final building included in this project is a 450,000 sq.  ft. Amazon fulfillment warehouse. It will contain a state-of-the-art pick mod and racking system, where products can be picked, packed, and shipped. The facility will also feature a mezzanine with shipping conveyors, and structural upgrades will soon be added throughout the warehouse to support the racking system.
