Coweta SR16

Summarize the project's program, features and achievements?

Coweta SR16 is a state-of-the-art distribution facility constructed with tilt-up methods requiring 11,350 cubic yards of concrete to be poured within the 271,111 square feet of the distribution center. This single-story building was a zero-incident project for all DANKO crew members and subcontractors and was completed under budget in 24 weeks. Inside the building is housed several HVAC units that allow company personnel to work easily and safely. Outside the building, multiple level sidewalks allow for safe accessibility with two ramp equipment entrances designed for safe transport with over forty dock doors available for offloading and onloading activities.

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

Inclement weather, design changes, and other schedule impacts presented a variety of challenges that required teamwork, communication and coordination with the general contractor, engineers, and sub-contractors. During the construction of this project crane mats were strategically utilized to safely maneuver around this site and erect the tilt-up panels in the safest possible way. DANKO ensured that all issues with slab-on-grade and tilt-wall construction were met with notice via collaboration and execution to ensure there were no negative impacts on the general contractor's schedule. With this project specifically, rain was preeminent, and as a result, the site would hold substantial water on the North end of the building. It was a consistent team effort with the general contractor and the civil site company to ensure everyone was able to work unimpeded. This project took an all-hands-on deck approach for all companies, but teamwork and commitment made this project finish ahead of schedule.

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

The storefront panels are a specialty, made of brick form liner that gives the building a state-of-the-art, modern appearance. In this instance, the storefront was constructed with specialized “F"- shaped panels that must be held with a temporary concrete leg due to weight constraints that is later sawed off once final attachments are made via the roof and corresponding wall panels. In this case, a portion of this panel was depressed to allow faux glass to run the length of the wall panel gap that was created after the removal of the temporary concrete legs. This gives the appearance of glass running uninterrupted along the tilt-wall panels that create the storefront, perfect for potential second-floor office space. The glass façade, and the specialty tilt-walls used to create it, round out the look and feel of the storefront to an updated and classy building with sharp angles and reflective surfaces that are in stark, attractive contrast to the surrounding open sky.

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

This brand-new distribution center has a great impact on community jobs with goods and services being closer and more obtainable for everyone, while generating hundreds of local jobs in the community.
