This project is an 808,835-square-foot warehouse and distribution facility for Jordan’s Furniture. Located in the Liberty and Union Industrial Park, the facility’s design reflects the furniture retailer’s unique brand, which combines the shopping experience with entertainment.
Concrete Strategies constructed the tilt-up walls for this 800,000-square-foot distribution center. Tilt-up started in January 2004 and the last panel was erected at the end of April. The facility employs cross-dock organization and includes 158 dock doors, eight customer delivery doors at grade and a drive-in door. The storage space has clear heights of 38-feet and 6-inches.
