Winner of the Bernard B. Barber Jr. Award of Excellence 2008


ENR California Award of Merit Winner in the Industrial Category, 2009.

The Dry Goods Building was a 1,200,000 s.f., cross-dock facility with 2-1/2 acres of tenant improvements and more than 160 dock positions. The 40’-clearance warehouse had 100’ wide continuous staging areas and a shrinkage compensating concrete floor with steel-armored joints and a Traprock hardened finish throughout. More than 900 skylights provided the majority of the required daytime illumination and energy efficient T5 fluorescent fixtures with motion sensors were installed for nighttime use. The building was completely racked and overhead trash conveyors continuously removed container debris. A forklift maintenance area with a 10 ton overhead crane was constructed within the building to service the client’s 500 forklifts. 48,000 s.f. was dedicated to forklift parking alone and the building boasts the largest and most advanced automated forklift battery maintenance system in the country. Enhanced security features included nearly 800 cameras which are monitored 24 hours a day. Since the facility is continuously operated, nearly 1,500 employees pass through the main entrance turnstiles daily via an advanced access control system.
