St. Louis, MO (January 12, 2009)
Clayco Inc. was recently named design-builder on a 71,000-square-foot freezer and cold dock expansion project in Canton, Mich., for Sysco Detroit, LLC. Construction will begin in February 2009 with an expected completion in late January 2010.
Located at 41600 Van Born Road, the distribution facility expansion plans include a single-story, steel freezer and cooler building with insulated wall panels. The expansion and renovation project will also integrate a new “mini-load,” a self-guided storage and retrieval system into the existing facility. During the construction, the operations of the existing 24-hour facility will be uninterrupted.
“Clayco brings exceptional experience in freezer and cooler building construction, as well as a long-standing relationship with Sysco,” said Rob Williams, Senior Project Manager at Clayco. “This is our seventh project for Sysco nationally, including building the present Sysco Conference Center in Canton which was completed in 2004.”
Clayco’s project team includes Mark Tomasik, project executive; Kurt Jaeger, project director; and Williams. The architect and interior designer is M+H Architects; the civil engineer is Environmental Engineers of Southfield, Mich.; and the structural engineer is Alper Audi, Inc.
