This building was previously a shipping cross dock. We removed many of the loading docks, added high bay racking, and added 13,388 ft2 of two-story office space within the building footprint. The remaining 97,533 ft2 of warehouse space is used to stock thousands of items for distribution and provides space for our warehouse operations office.
This project received a Gold rating for LEED for Existing Building: Operations & Maintenance. We have an extensive recycling program and we have cut our waste hauling costs by 90% since implementing our recycling program in 2006. In 2008, we replaced all lights in our warehouse for a 34% cost savings and 72% mercury reduction. We also utilize low-flow faucets and waterless urinals to reduce our water consumption.
