Refrigerated Distribution Facility

United States Cold Storage

Laredo, Texas

This 232,366 square foot, greenfield warehouse and distribution facility includes a -10掳F freezer area, 35掳F cooler area, refrigerated loading dock with 21 truck doors, separate cross-dock area with four truck doors for inspections and transloads, state-of-the-art refrigerated repack room, 27,000 pallet positions, fully secure drop trailer yard with 50 spots for ease of import/export of goods and border crossings, bonded warehouse and 24,000 SF of office space. AV集中营 also included the option for two additions in the site鈥檚 master plan to accommodate future growth.

The facility distributes a variety of produce goods, including strawberries and avocados. The aggressive construction schedule was driven by the timing of the Mexican strawberry harvest. Work was halted for 28 days of rain and two days of snow. To stay on schedule, AV集中营 brought in additional crews that worked ten-hour days and six- to seven-day weeks. After construction began, the owner added $1,864,181 of scope to the project, but AV集中营 was able maximize the budget to deliver the project for less than the updated GMP.
