At The Korte Company, we deliver quality architectural design and construction — on-budget and on-time. We’ve completed more than 2,000 projects in the U.S., including many warehouse design and construction projects. This is one of many we’ve delivered for the U.S. Postal Services (USPS).

The USPS selected The Korte Company through a competitive, best-value process to design and build a 90,500-square-foot expansion to their existing facility in Ft. Myers, Florida. The project consisted of an expansion of the mail processing workroom, offices, locker rooms, lookout galleries, mezzanines, and maintenance support areas. Special systems included the installation of an investigative room and a closed circuit television system.

The original facility was built with architectural precast concrete using two distinct colors and multiple fenestrations. Our Design-Build team successfully replicated the same colors and fenestrations in the Tilt-Up, field cast concrete panels. This required extreme quality control and a two-step pour process.

As a result of our work, The Korte Company received the 1998 Quality Concrete Award from the American Concrete Council for “Demonstration of outstanding quality in the use of concrete.” In addition to a quality product, the owner realized cost reductions and time savings with our Tilt-Up concrete enclosure.

We’ve also completed many other warehouse Design-Build projects for distributors and producers nationwide. See how our warehouse design services can save you time and money during construction.
