As with any building type, the design and construction of a distribution center requires a myriad of design professionals and contractors. From site design, through architectural, structural and M/E/P, to racking, process and logistics, there are several aspects to keep in mind. A successful distribution center requires input from all the above.
Unlike most other building types, however, distribution centers require the structure to take a much more prominent role in the overall building design. Distribution centers are large, highly-functional buildings, with a lot of wall, a lot of floor and a lot of structural design leading the way.
At Providence Engineering, we have been designing distribution centers for more than 25 years. We work across the United States and Canada, with Owners, Developers, Architects, Engineers and Contractors. With the design of millions of s/f behind us, we’ve learned a lot about how to design, build and deliver a distribution center that exceeds expectations.
