FedEx Ground – Lafayette, LA

SAAD Development relied once again on D.F. Chase to design-build this new 239,000 square foot facility for end user FedEx Ground. This facility, like others for this same client, had a very tight timeline and this project was no exception.  This project included a very sophisticated gate and barrier system with a stand-a-lone security building including metal detectors and turnstiles to process both employees and visitors.The building is a pre-engineered frame with insulated metal panels on the front façade and standard R panels for the remainder of the warehouse exterior. The interior of this logistics center includes staff offices and many prototypical features specific to FedEx Ground use.
