Project Summary

On our third project for SYSCO, Welliver designed a 64,000 square-foot expansion for the food distribution company without disrupting the delivery and loading of up to 50 tractor trailers every day. A three-way partnership was the key to success on this design/build project. SYSCO outlined their requirements for the major expansion, the architect designed a building to meet those needs economically and practically, and Welliver recommended a construction plan to achieve their goals.


Welliver maintained excellent communication with the Owner and Architect, through the design/build delivery process, to solve unexpected problems such as the need for deep-pile foundations instead of the planned conventional footings.


The Welliver project team coordinated with all parties to plan construction around business operations to eliminate any disruptions to deliveries and focused on simple, economical and quickly-executed building techniques. Together, the teams developed procedures to prevent construction dust from infiltrating existing warehouse. The project team took proactive steps to coordinate all efforts in order to keep the project moving quickly and efficiently.



A fast-track nine-month schedule was planned, and achieved
