The project involved the construction of a new steel structure facility to accommodate a warehouse and an office to operate as the main distribution center for Dunkin’ in the northeast region. The reinforced concrete slabs at the warehouse were provided with a monolithic trap rock finish and flatness built to endure rigorous and constant use. The warehouse consisted of an ambient air dry storage area, a 34° F cooler, a -10° F freezer and a -20° F freezer; providing a total of 223,000 SF of supply storage. A vapor-tight insulated metal panel system was constructed as the exterior wall of the warehouse. The high-end corporate office area was provided with 45,000 SF of office space, a lab/kitchen for food testing, large conference centers and internet/networking hosting center. The office building exterior façade consisted of an architectural precast and brick cavity wall as well as an extensive aluminum storefront. Landscaping was completed over the 28-acre site which included an irrigation system fed by a well. The project was finished on schedule within 14 months.
