Destination Maternity


ARCO worked closely with Whitesell Organization early in the program for this new distribution warehouse and logistics building located on a 37-acre site located at 1000 John Galt Way in Florence, NJ.
ARCO employed an innovative front-end engineering model early in the building program to provide project concept costs and options. With a wealth of data from past projects, and a depth of experience in Industrial facility construction, the ARCO Team was able to provide conceptual design and cost information to the team. This allowed Whitesell to make site and facility decisions and to drive design development early in the project.

The new building provides Destination Maternity a state-of-the-art distribution center with greater space and new material handling equipment to increase its capacity and efficiency of operations.

ARCO provided design and construction service for this 406,000 square-foot tilt-wall building that provided for 36’ clear height warehouse space, 40 dock positions and a 93,000 sf expansion pad. Notable building system features include a white thermoplastic roof, 4000 amp electric service, fluorescent high bay lighting fixtures with motion sensors, an ESFR fire suppression system, upgraded warehouse insulation, LED site lights, high-efficiency HVAC equipment and a central computer controlled HVAC management system, bicycle storage and changing rooms, low-volume water closets, and special parking for low emitting and fuel efficient vehicles.

New Jersey Business and Industry Association’s 2015 New Good Neighbor Award in the New Construction Category. Awarded to the Whitesell Organization by an independent panel of judges based upon the economic benefit, job creation, architectural merit and community involvement.
