Atlanta, GA–A M King, a fully-integrated Design-Build company, announced today that it will take on the renovation and expansion of a distribution center owned by Atlanta Bonded Warehouse Corporation (ABW). The project will provide additional high-quality, food-grade warehouse space to help ABW meet the increasing storage demands of current and new clients requiring temperature-controlled storage and handling services.
A M King will design, construct and fully rack a new, 162,366-square-foot space to create room for ABW clients’ confectionary and other food products, including a complete re-roof of the existing warehouse and construction of two mezzanines (5,683-square-feet) and a small office area (536-square-feet). The project also includes 7.45 acres of site improvements such as 120,000- square-feet of new exterior concrete pavement, development of a detention pond, and upgrade of campus utilities.
The building expansion consists of a structural steel edifice with a 4-inch IMP (insulated metal panel) metal skin and an 80-mil TPO roof membrane designed to FM global standards. Interior concrete floor slabs are 9-inch thick monolithic traprock shrinkage-compensating slabs.
A M King is generating a multi-staged site logistics plan to efficiently work while allowing ABW to maintain 24/7 operations, as well as accommodate trailer parking during construction. The Project Manager is Eric Perkins; Preconstruction Managers are Stuart Jernigan and Eric Perkins and the Superintendent is Mark Hunter.
“This project allows us to do what we do best – construction integration in a fully functioning facility without disrupting existing operations,” explains Eric Perkins, A M King Project Manager.
