South Fordham Industrial

Summarize the project's program, features and achievements.

This new flex industrial building is in southwest Longmont Colorado. It was developed to meet the demands for last-mile deliveries, an underrepresented product type in the area. The building is located on a 3.36-acre lot. It is a single-story, site-cast Tilt-Up concrete, high bay facility with twenty-four-foot clear heights, eight dock-high loading areas, and four drive-in doors. The structure features architectural details such as wing walls and glass storefronts. Natural light is accessed with clerestory windows in the warehouse and spandrel glazing at the corner entries.

Communicate any engineering complexities or unique features of the panel design for this project.

The structural challenges for this building included: providing steel framing at the main building corners for the corner window system without a corner column; providing for a large number of future knockout dock doors and office windows; providing for office panel design with a panel joint centered on the window system and offset support below; and providing an economical and constructible design for several architectural non-load-bearing panels at the tenant entries, including making the panel elements look like they were all one panel.
