Palmetto Coast Industrial Park- Building 1

Summarize the project's program, features and achievements?

PCIP Building 1 is part of the Myrtle Beach market's first-Class A industrial park, Palmetto Coast Industrial Park (PCIP). Totaling 69 acres and 665,854 SF across four (4) buildings, the project will provide users with a best-in-class park setting capable of accommodating users from 25,000 SF up to 217,350 SF+. Positioned along Water Tower Road with uninterrupted access to SC HWY 31, SC HWY 22, and US HWY 17, the park provides outstanding connectivity to the entire Myrtle Beach metropolitan area in addition to Wilmington, NC, and Charleston, SC.

In the first quarter of 2024, Building 1 was completed and delivered, showcasing a 165,000 square foot rear-load facility with striking tilt-wall construction. This impressive structure features a minimum clear height of 32 feet, an ESFR sprinkler system, and well-designed column spacing of 50 by 54 feet, complemented by a 60-foot speed bay. The facility is equipped with energy-efficient LED lighting and boasts up to 44 dock-high loading positions. The building's height varies, with the tallest panel reaching 41 feet above finished floor (AFF), while most panels are 27 feet wide.

In Q2 of 2024, Amazon has signed a lease for PCIP Building 1, aiming to supercharge their delivery distribution across the Southeastern Carolinas. The allure of the building's existing features and prime location were instrumental in sealing the deal. Buoyed by the triumph of Building 1, Palmetto Coast Industrial Park is now setting its sights on expanding with the construction of at least two additional buildings.

Finishes & Accessories:

  • Rain screen- Dizal 6" V profile Aluminum Plank siding (color: White Ash Medium Brown) was used at the wood accents.
  • Formliner by Customrock pattern #4009; 3/4" deep rib (4" oc, 1" peak, 2 ½" valley) used as accents.
  • Oldcastle 5750T Stormmax thermally broken impact aluminum storefront systems were used for glazing because of the proximity to the Atlantic ocean, -----East Coast TVM provided the aluminum canopy systems.
  • Wunderfixx used for concrete smoothing compound
  • Silcoseal 2000F for bond breaker
  • Sikasil-GP for acetoxy cure silicone sealant
  • Victory Bear Slab Saver accessories were used.

What obstacles were overcome related to the schedule, budget, program, specification, site, etc. on this project?

One of the most significant challenges of this project emerged when subcontractors took on the engineering of the glazing, overhead doors, and canopies. Given the building's location within a mile of the ocean, the area is susceptible to high wind speeds. Consequently, the spans of the glass required meticulous examination to ensure their resilience and stability in such conditions. Sourcing of unique products as well as

Please communicate any engineering complexities or unique features of the panel design for this project?

The corner glass creates a condition where the panels get erected and a temporary leg is designed to keep the panel in place until the corner column is welded to the two panels. Additional camber is designed into the roof steel joists to accommodate additional rain ponding due to the low sloped roof.

What is the potential for this project's impact on the community and/or environment?

Highlighted earlier, Amazon has inked a lease agreement with the developer for this building—a milestone achievement. This collaboration is set to usher in a wave of positive changes for the region, including the creation of numerous job opportunities, enhanced efficiency and accessibility for Amazon deliveries, and a substantial $14.5 million investment in Horry County. Anticipated to be nothing short of transformative, Sandy Davis, President and CEO of the Myrtle Beach Economic Development Corporation (MBEDC), anticipates the Amazon warehouse to leave a lasting impact on the local economy.
