The Moreno Valley Logistics Center is located a mile east of Interstate 215. Over the span of a ten-month construction schedule, Oltmans completed Building 1, a S-1/B, Type III-B, 1,331,763-s.f., concrete tilt-up shell on a 2,727,285 s.f. site area, including tenant improvements.
Associated improvements to the project site include surface parking areas, vehicle drive aisles, truck courts, utility infrastructure, landscaping, exterior lighting, signage, three water quality/detention basins, and street frontage improvements. The project includes a 300kW solar power system, ESFR K-28 fire sprinkler system, and an eight-inch thick slab.
Building Area: 1,332,000 s.f.
Site Area: 2,727,000 s.f.
Located near State Route 237 in Milpitas, California, Bridge Point Silicon Valley is an industrial complex comprised of two (2) ground-up, concrete tilt-up structures, together totaling 722,000 s.f. on a 35-acre site. The project is near big employment hubs such as San Jose, Oakland, and San Francisco, and close to major Fortune 100 operations within the Bay Area.
Greg Woolway, vice president and Bay Area officer for Bridge Development, shared about the project, â€śWe didnâ€™t want this to be a traditional warehouse. We have really cool wood features on these buildings. They have a lot of glass and glazing. You normally donâ€™t see that with industrial.â€ť
Existing Soil Conditions
Due to the projectâ€™s close proximity to the San Francisco Bay, just north of San Jose, the existing project site contained high levels of alluvial soil, making it too insufficiently dense to support the loads of new construction. To remedy this, Oltmans worked with Hayward Baker to propose an effective ground-improvement method in lieu of traditional drilled piles. The team opted for dynamic compaction.
Dynamic compaction uses the energy from a falling weight in a predetermined grid pattern to improve granular soils and fills. In this two-part process, in order to compact granular soil, the first step requires a 27-ton weight to be dropped repeatedly from a height of 60 to 70 feet at regular intervals of 7 feet on center throughout the site. This method eliminates two to three feet of sediment. Then, a surcharge of 10 feet is completed to further compact the clay soil and eliminate an additional three to four inches of sediment.
January 2020 Construction Video
In the video linked below, two rigs are completing a wick-drain installation across the proposed site for Building 2, prior to moving west towards Building 1. They are followed by DDC rigs which drop 27 tons of weight repeatedly onto a 15-foot-by-15-foot grid during two passes. Next is an ironing pass, using a 10-ton weight, spaced out among a seven-foot by seven-foot grid. Upon completion, the site elevation is anticipated to settle approximately two feet by densifying the loose granular soils up to 15 to 20 feet deep. Following this process, the site will be surcharged, anticipating another three to four inches of settlement. Piezometers and settlement plates will be installed to track the progress.
Oltmans is currently constructing a two-story concrete tilt-up distribution center with 8,000 s.f. of office space for Newcastle Partners, Inc. The project includes all associated on- and off-site work, mezzanine, and tenant improvement for a facility that features:

In 2012, SRG Commercial (SARESâ€˘REGIS Group) gained control of a rare, large, undeveloped parcel of land in Ontario, off of Vineyard and the I-10 Freeway. The site was originally part of a high-density plan area, developed in 1981, consisting of office, retail, hotel, and residential space. With fluctuations in market demand, a plan was devised to develop a new, state-of-the-art industrial park providing three million square feet of building area on 150 acres. According to SRG, the site was entitled in approximately 12 months, encompassing a Specific Plan Amendment, General Plan Amendment, zone change, development agreement, and full EIR. Entitlements were completed in Spring 2015 and construction commenced immediately thereafter.
The new Meredith International Centre is a warehouse and distribution complex comprised of seven buildings. Oltmans Constructionâ€™s scope of work involved 14 separate contracts which included everything from the construction of buildings 1 through 7, to the interior build-out of all seven buildings, to infrastructure, and off-site work. The facilities are LEED Certified and include high-efficiency lighting, heating/cooling, and solar rooftops on buildings 2, 3, 6, and 7.
Soil reports showed that the site was fairly sandy, and since the land was undeveloped, the grading portion of the project had a short duration. The primary challenge was to level and develop all 150 acres of the site. The pads were all graded at once and adjusted to balance, but the first completed building had the most time sensitive schedule. Building 7 for QVC was completed in ten months, and included one million square feet of warehouse and distribution space. Street improvements included a total of 13,700 linear feet of new road, with 6,500 linear feet being opened to traffic, and included such improvements as landscaped medians; concrete paving; asphalt paving; storm drains; sewer, domestic and recycled water lines; SCE, Frontier and Spectrum communication lines; street lights; traffic signals (ten new and one modified intersection); two-inch city cable conduit; and landscaping. Improvements also included 32 new SCE services with meter pedestals, applications, inspections, and releases at each individual meter. Two bridges were widened by eight feet and 14 feet to include new foundations with piling, new precast beams, and concrete bridge deck and railings. Under the Corps of Engineer, storm drain connections were installed. A 30-inch, 780-foot-long sleeve for a sewer siphon was installed 40 feet deep, totaling 7,000 linear feet of major storm drains. All storm drains were equipped with diversion manholes and tied into two distilling basins.
Buildings 1 through 6 range in size from 128,308 square feet to 573,889 square feet, and are LEED Gold Certified. All fully-leased buildings, Oltmans provided tenant improvements for:
- Building 1 – The Wheel Group – 138,784 s.f.
- Building 2 – Distribution Logistics – 553,136 s.f.
- Building 3 – The Gilbert Company – 398,517 s.f.
- Building 4 – Metropolitan Logistics Services – 128,308 s.f.
