At The Korte Company, we understand the many complexities of distribution construction. We’ve completed close to 2,000 builds and have constructed nearly 19 million square feet of distribution center space. This build for Medart, Inc. is one of our best distribution construction projects.
Medart, Inc., a regional distributor of lawn and garden equipment, such as small engines for Kohler, Tecumseh and Briggs & Stratton, selected The Korte Company as the Construction Manager for their new office and distribution complex in Arnold, Missouri. The complex consists of two concrete Tilt-Up buildings that provide 104,000 square feet of space for the company’s headquarters and distribution operation.
In order to meet the demands of its customers for the busy spring season, Medart required that we complete this project just seven and one-half months after the start of construction. To satisfy Medart’s requirements, we established an aggressive construction schedule, then carefully coordinated the work so we could construct two buildings simultaneously. In order to help expedite the erection of steel and ensure that we finished the roof before winter, our crews worked ten hours per day, six days per week.
And we got the job done — on budget and on time.
We’re seasoned in all areas of warehouse construction, including project budgets and schedules, benchmarking, sustainability and more. See more of our other warehouse and distribution construction work or learn more about the distribution construction services we offer.
