SunCap Property Group is a national commercial real estate development, investment and advisory firm specializing in commercial build-to-suit properties throughout North America. On behalf of their client FedEx, SunCap contracted with Evans for the design/build construction of a new package sorting facility located in Jacksonville, Florida.
The 305,000 SF distribution center includes 12,000 SF of administrative space as well as a separate 5,000 SF vehicle maintenance facility and a 2,100 SF gateway building. The project site’s swampy terrain required extensive dewatering and site work prior to the start of construction. All three structures are constructed of conventional steel frames with load-bearing precast concrete tilt-wall panels and mechanically fastened TPO roof systems. The buildings are also equipped with fire alarm and intrusion detection systems. Inside the main building, there is an automated sorting system spanning the entire distribution area including van off load lines, 110 bay truck doors and HVLS fans. Scope of work included design/build services, complete shell building construction, tenant buildout, and a comprehensive site work package.
