Graycor Construction

Project Scope

Graycor Construction provided design-build services for two main expansions and renovations to this existing 477,000-square-foot food Distribution Center. The facility received a new 40,000-square-foot dry goods storage addition and a 49,000-square-foot perishable addition. Graycor modified and re-purposed 60,000 square feet of cold temperature spaces. The live environment work included improvements to finished spaces and a new parking lot and employee entrance. The existing building was also upgraded with LED lighting, server room conversion that included an IT shut down, locker room renovations and a significant upgrade to the emergency generator system that performs as a peak power shaver.

Challenging site conditions included strict compliance with Minnesota stormwater regulations, wetland mitigation, undercutting amending native soils, deep foundations and underground gas transmission line conflicts. Anticipating a winter completion date, several scopes of work were completed in advance, allowing ease of owner occupancy and accessibility three months ahead of schedule!
