Distribution Services International
West Construction was hired to construct a 34’ tall 40,000 SF warehouse including new LED lighting, fire suppression, and related dock & door improvements. The warehouse was an addition to an existing distribution facility and required a detailed foundation, including under-pinning of the existing footings, as well as a heavily reinforced 8” concrete slab to account for DSI’s storage of heavy paper and tissue rolls. The project scope also included various civil improvements including roughly 1 acre of new heavy-duty concrete paving and utility relocations. This the last phase of the current expansion to DSI’s 1 million square foot warehousing and logistics services business. Through careful planning and constant communication, DSI remained in un-interrupted operation throughout construction. The project was completed on time and on budget in February of 2018.
