LogistiCenter℠ at 65 – Louisville, KY
General Scope of Project: LogistiCenter℠ at 65 is a 631,000 SF Speculative Bulk Distribution Center on 32 Acres along I-65 corridor in Louisville, KY.

- United Construction Midwest worked with the developer to creatively value engineer the project without reducing scope which yielded a substantial cost advantage over competing projects in the sub-market.
