GLP eCommerce Distribution Facility – Joliet, IL
General Scope of Project: This project included the transformation of a 475,000 SF speculative building shell into a Class-A warehouse and fulfillment center for one of the most progressive and successful internet retailers in the world. The eCommerce facility located in Joliet, IL, was strategically designed to support the tenant’s sophisticated supply chain with a goal of achieving same day delivery of products ordered online to customers in urban areas such as Chicago. Based on the previously existing parking area, the spec building was originally built to accommodate 100 employees. During this project the parking area was expanded to over 800 parking spaces, increasing the employee capacity substantially.
The Project Team worked in lockstep with one another in order to condense a 20 week project timeline into 12 weeks to meet the tenant’s schedule requirements. The project required 200 tradesmen working multiple shifts, and there were zero reports of lost time accidents.
