Industrial Expansion of Distribution Center

Location: Montgomery County, PA
Type/Size: Industrial Expansion
Services: Site Development

PCS was retained by an international shipping company to expand an existing distribution center in Montgomery County. The project involved the creation of approximately eight acres of additional company vehicle and employee parking areas. To accomplish this, two existing stormwater management facilities were redesigned to implement best management practices and to meet current State and Township regulations. The design included retaining walls, a vehicular bridge over a small stream, extensive frontage improvements, dam upgrades/modifications, and PADEP and PennDOT permitting.

Maintaining daily operations during construction was of paramount importance to the owner. To accomplish this, the improvements were designed to minimize disruption to the operational areas of the facility and an extensive phasing plan was developed in coordination with the operators of the facility, to permit operations to continue during construction.
