A M King Begins Expansion Of Kennesaw, Georgia, Warehouse

A M King, a fully-integrated design, construction, facility maintenance and property services company, started the renovation and expansion of a distribution center owned by Atlanta Bonded Warehouse Corporation in Kennesaw, Georgia.

“This project allows us to do what we do best, construction integration in a fully functioning facility without disrupting existing operations,” explains Eric Perkins, A M King Project Manager.

According to company officials, the project will provide additional high-quality, food-grade warehouse space to help ABW meet the increasing storage demands of current and new clients requiring temperature-controlled storage and handling services.

A M King will design, construct and fully rack a new, 162,366-square-foot space to create room for ABW clients’ confectionary and other food products, including a complete re-roof of the existing warehouse and construction of two mezzanines (5,683-square-feet) and a small office area (536-square-feet).

The project also includes 7.45 acres of site improvements such as 120,000- square-feet of new exterior concrete pavement, development of a detention pond, and upgrade of campus utilities.

The building expansion consists of a structural steel edifice with a 4-inch IMP (insulated metal panel) metal skin and an 80-mil TPO roof membrane designed to FM global standards. Interior concrete floor slabs are 9-inch thick monolithic traprock shrinkage-compensating slabs.

A M King said it is generating a multi-staged site logistics plan to efficiently work while allowing ABW to maintain 24/7 operations, as well as accommodate trailer parking during construction. The Project Manager is Eric Perkins; Preconstruction Managers are Stuart Jernigan and Eric Perkins and the Superintendent is Mark Hunter.
