Jones Development called on D.F. Chase to design-build a new 150,000 square foot manual facility for end user FedEx Ground. The facility had a tight timeline to be designed in about 45 days and construction to be ready to hand over the keys to FedEx within 10 months. There is an elaborate automated gate and barrier system with a standalone security building including metal detectors and turnstiles to process both employees and visitors.The building is pre-engineered with insulated metal panel for the offices and standard panels for the warehouse. The interior of this “all the bells and whistles” logistics center includes staff offices including many prototypical features specific to FedEx Ground use.
