Jefferson, GA.—A M King, a fully integrated Design-Build firm, has announced its third project for discount grocer ALDI at the Jefferson, Georgia location. The new cold storage distribution center will boost the company’s existing perishables space, providing the ability to offer a larger selection of high quality products at a low cost and spur overall company growth. Construction is scheduled to be completed by May 2018.
A M King will build 55,000-square feet of perishable expansion and renovate 100,000-square-feet of existing perishable areas. The project will also include renovation of the employee welfare areas and adding docks on the backside of the Dry Warehouse for special buy items. Sustainability initiatives include conversion to LED lighting, and installation of a white roof and VFDs on refrigeration equipment.
“The owner has requested that we fast track this project to meet required product release dates,” says Carl Morse, A M King Senior Project Manager. “We are also focusing on a major interior renovation, specifically in the Perishable area, that will house ALDI’s expanding line of products.”
