FED EX GROUND DISTRIBUTION CENTER | CHANDLER, AZ | 330,512 SF
Deutsch Architecture Group provided the design services for this design-build project, on a 48.7 acre-site. The project is a total of 330,512 SF, and includes three new concrete tilt buildings with hybrid wood roof systems. The main distribution facility is 307,719 SF and has 14,478 square feet of Class A office space. The vehicle maintenance facility is 5,180 square feet and the Gateway Building is 3,135 SF - totaling 330,512 SF over all.
The new fully-automated 307,719-square foot, small package delivery and sorting facility handles out-bound and in-bound critical, time-sensitive packages that are transported to and from the sort facility via over-the-road semi-trailer and double trailer trucks. Other operational functions include temporary package holding, vehicle maintenance, indoor-overnight vehicle storage and office functions. This automated sorting facility services up to 134 FedEx Ground vans and 111 FedEx home delivery vans. Since the vehicles enter the building to unload to the automated sorting conveyor lines, the project included critical C02/NO2 monitoring and evacuation systems. These systems regulate the accumulation of toxic gases and will automatically evacuate those gases as required to constantly maintain a safe work environment. The aggressive fast-tracked schedule was completed on time and within budget.
