Warehouse Construction Update

By Dan Martel, P.E. | August 11, 2021

Construction of a new warehouse/fulfillment center is well underway, and it’s great to see our design on paper coming to reality. We are the architects and structural engineers of record for this new 150,000sf building that utilizes a metal building system structure. Check out the progress!
