We’ve completed more than 40 distribution construction projects for the United States Postal Service (USPS), and this is one of our most comprehensive projects for them.
The Korte Company was selected as the Design-Build contractor to deliver this 352,000-square-foot facility located at the International Airport Business Park in Spokane, Washington. This mail processing and distribution center houses bulk mail and air mail operations and contains a workroom, offices, administrative areas and mechanical mezzanines.
The building is the second example of the USPS’ new design prototype for its processing and distribution centers — a steel structure with a split-faced block exterior and a prefabricated metal panel border along the top of the building.
Our project team successfully completed the building 68 days ahead of schedule. The USPS then awarded The Korte Company the Bulk Mail and Tray Mail Conveyor System. Through an aggressive procurement plan and “round-the-clock” installation plan, we completed the Bulk Mail System and Tray Mail System 18 days ahead of schedule.
This build shows what’s possible with hard work and a collaborative Design-Build team that makes the job the boss. Learn more about Design-Build to see why.
