Clayco completed a 340,000-square-foot distribution center for Ritter SYSCO Food Services, LLC in Jersey City, N.J. Six years after the initial project, Clayco added a 125,000-square-foot expansion to the distribution and office facility.
The expansion and original building are constructed primarily of insulated wall panels over structural steel frame. The facility features “high cube” freezers and coolers, a dry storage zone, refrigerated and dry goods loading docks and Class A office space. Distribution areas are 28 feet high, have “super-flat,” insulated floor systems to meet strict temperature control standards, and are zoned to accommodate the storage of both perishable and dry goods.
When Clayco constructed the original structure, special care was taken to provide for future expansion of freezer, cooler and office space. The project addition included minus 10° F freezer, cooler and office expansions. When completed, the expansion brought the total size of the distribution facility to 465,000 square feet.
