The new distribution center was designed to serve all of its Florida retail stores from a central location. The facility is 400,000 sq. ft. and features a large open warehouse storage space with conveyor systems, hazard control areas, office spaces, and a 3,200 sq. ft. retail store. The building was constructed with concrete tilt-up panel walls with metal stud interior framing for the office and storage areas.
Some of the project’s unique design challenges included accommodating large quantities of industrial equipment and containment requirements for potentially hazardous materials. Working with both O’Reilly’s team of engineers as well as our own consultants, WMB-ROI delivered a space large and flexible enough to accommodate all of O’Reilly’s distribution needs, and generated over 400 new jobs for the Polk County area.
