Project ALDI, Inc. Food Distribution Facility – Mt. Juliet, TN

A M King provided complete project management services for this project, a new 430,000 SF greenfield food distribution facility which was completed in 2005. Extensive site work was required given that the entire site sat on a subsurface rock as is typical in the Nashville area. Refrigerated space was serviced by evaporative fan coil units located in rooftop penthouses with cooling air distributed by ductwork, and an ammonia refrigerant system from a central machine room. A M King also provided site analysis and due diligence for the site selection process. The total construction duration from start of foundations to substantial completion was 14 months.
