Project Summary

SYSCO Food Services of Albany hired Welliver to design and construct a new distribution center in a tight timeframe. A main building is divided between dry and cooler-freezer storage spaces with shipping and receiving docks and a two-story space with offices for executives and the sales, marketing, shipping and receiving departments. A separate large maintenance garage includes space for SYSCO’s truck maintenance activities and staff, several truck wash bays and two fueling islands.


Multiple site location changes required careful coordination with the Owner and design team and the ability of the Welliver team to be flexible and react fast to these changes. A 66-acre gravel pit was transformed into a workable site by moving approximately 450,000 cubic yards of material in less than six weeks


Welliver selected the members of project team to include those with professional experience that best matched the design and process requirements of this building. To deal with the aggressive schedule while maximizing communications and minimizing error, two superintendents, several project managers, and a full-time scheduler were assigned. Welliver created every opportunity to add value to the design and construction of this project. The firm combined its numerous years of experience with excellent engineering and architecture to assure success.



The schedule was accelerated from 12 months to eight months and was delivered to the Owner within that time frame.
