A M King’s second major project at Cheney Brothers, Inc. (CBI)’s Statesville facility will bring the total area to 342,126 sf.
The first expansion featured a 169,090-sf cold storage addition that helped CBI increase its refrigeration capabilities in the region and continue its northward growth path. That project included renovation of a 34,686-sf existing dry warehouse and conversion of a 37,388-sf existing cold storage space to ambient temperature storage. Notable was the development of a 2,000-sf, full commercial culinary center, construction of a new interior office mezzanine and 25 new dock doors. The next phase included parking lot development, addition of a dry warehouse, expansion of the existing downstairs employee breakroom and relocation of Cheney Express. The complexity of these projects was heightened by the fact that all work was performed in a fully operational distribution facility.
