POLK COUNTY, FL
FEDEX GROUND FACILITY
This 303,000-square-foot facility warehouse located in Polk County, Florida was chosen because of its access to major highways, proximity to customers' distribution centers, and a strong local workforce for recruiting employees. Inside the facility there is 2,940-square-feet selected for office space. The new facility will provide up to approximately 260 full-time temporary jobs and 360 full-time job positions.
The warehouse is constructed of conventional steel frame with load bearing tilt-up concrete wall panels. In addition, a 5,180-square-foot vehicle maintenance building and 2,400-square-foot gateway security building were included in this project. Like the warehouse, the vehicle maintenance building is constructed of conventional steel frame with load bearing tilt-up concrete wall panels. The gateway security building is constructed with metal stud framing and fiber cement siding.
