Mercantile Center expanded its building offerings with three new distribution centers, Mercantile Distribution Centers 11, 12 and 13 (Mercantile Distribution Center 11-13). Bob Moore Construction was general contractor and Hardy McCullah/MLM Architects was the architect for the Mercantile Distribution Center 11 – 13 project.
The three buildings offer a combined 380,900 SF of warehouse space. Mercantile Distribution Center 11 is 137,500 SF with 22 dock doors for general receiving and shipping and Mercantile Distribution Center 12 and 13 are 121,700 SF with 26 dock doors each. Ceiling height for each building is 28 feet.
“Building three buildings as part of one project in a fairly tight space required strong logistical planning,” said Ed McGuire, President of Bob Moore Construction. “The fact that existing buildings surrounded the jobsite meant that we had to manage our working space very efficiently as well. Our site superintendent did an excellent job of controlling the logistics and overlapping the trades to keep the jobsite productive and on schedule.”
