Project consisted of the design/build of a new 1 million SF global exports facility in the 2,700-acre Savannah Gateway Industrial Hub (SGIH) in Effingham County, Georgia. This is the first project to be designed and constructed in the industrial park and also in-cludes the planning, approval and installation of the new rail system for SGIH. 610,000 SF of the 1,000,000 SF is build-to-suit for A&R Logistics – one of North America’s leading supply chain services companies for the chemical industry. The remaining space will be upfitted for new tenants. The A&R Logistics space is fully sprinklered and includes a 4,000 SF admin suite, 850 SF truck dock office suite, vacuum system for extracting pellets from rail hopper cars placed within a 60′ high clear pop-up tower, process equip-ment for packaging and palletizing the pellets, rail and uncovered rail dock in the rear and truck loading docks in the front, attached and free-standing rail loading canopies with fall protection, truck scales, and motorized rail doors. Project features electrified ac-cess control systems at all exterior openings and at the admin suite. The truck loading docks include pit levelers, and there are two drive-in ramps into the building. The building structure is concrete tilt-wall with structural steel columns and roof joists. A clear height of 36’ is required at the first row of interior columns. The roof system is Thermoplastic Polyolefin (TPO). Site design included site improvements, parking and traffic signage, erosion and sediment control measures, paving, grading, drainage, and on-site water and gravity sewer.
