Makita Expansion

Project Details

Scannell Properties, on behalf of Makita, a Japanese tool and equipment manufacturer founded in 1915, contracted with Evans on the expansion of Makita’s new regional distribution center located in the Sunridge Business Park of Wilmer, TX. The original 227,230 square-foot facility, purchased in 2017, sits on nearly 25 acres and was a speculative development built in 2016 by Scannell. This facility is Makita’s fourth US facility and includes a 4,000 square-foot training center which offers tailored curriculum and hands-on training.

Evans scope of work on a 66,129 sf building expansion, included design-build services for all civil, structural, architectural, plumbing, fire protection, HVAC and electrical. A geotechnical investigation was also performed for site work grading and heavy-duty pavement areas – all to seamlessly match the existing facility. The building was constructed of structural steel and tilt-wall concrete panels and includes eight 40,000lb dock levers with locks and two dock doors with edge-of-dock levelers. All ten truck docks have 9’x10’, 20-gauge vertical lift overhead doors. The project was delivered in seven months.
