The Walgreen Company selected Korte to design and construct a state-of-the-art high bay warehouse addition for one of its largest distribution centers in the country. The addition was designed to accommodate narrow-aisle, 50-foot-tall racks and over nine miles of automated conveyors. The facility also has two levels of storage mezzanines above the dock area.
The warehouse’s floor slab finish meets stringent criteria for strength and 100 FF flatness to support the high-bay lift trucks that move between the racks. The project team also re-routed the stormwater system and added new parking areas, a water storage tank, fire loop, pump house and electrical service.
