Alston Construction was contracted by Medline Industries, America’s largest privately held medical supply maker, to build their newest industrial facility in Montgomery, NY. A repeat client, Medline trusted Alston to construct their
1, 296,046 SF facility, the largest in Orange County, on more than 100 acres of farm land.
From the start of design and even construction the job was being planned as a precast building. As fate would have it, the precast supplier dropped out of the job September 17th, 2020, just 4 weeks before the first panel was scheduled to be delivered. Alston jumped into action and coordinated with the design team to create new drawings for approval to utilize tilt panels poured onsite. By breaking the design and shop drawings into sequences, the team was able to expedite the design and shop drawing process. This allowed us to form our first panels on October 12, and tilt our first panels on 12/2/2020.
The flexibility offered by the cast in place tilt up process allowed us to turn a potential 6 month delay into a 1 month time savings.
