The challenge of constructing the new warehouse facility in a wetland environment involved the use of structural piles and a bridge connecting the new and an existing building over an active waterway. Continual dewatering efforts were necessary during the footing excavation and foundation work, yet the building was completed on time and within budget. The building features concrete retaining walls, 6” reinforced concrete slab on grade and an energy efficient motion sensor lighting package. Varco-Pruden manufactured the pre-engineered building utilizing wide bay spacing and a standing seam roof.
