ARCO built the South Region Distribution Center for Whole Foods in Braselton, GA.
The 110,000 SF facility consists of several temperature-controlled rooms, including a -10° F freezer, 28° F meat cooler, 34° F dry produce room, 34° F wet produce room, 55° F dry produce room, 55° F cooler, 38° F cold dock, 75° F dry bulk room and 4 banana ripening rooms. The facility uses an ammonia refrigeration system.
To reduce the environmental impact, ARCO incorporated energy-efficient finishes such as waterless urinals, motion sensing fixtures, a solar water heater and a rainwater harvesting system for irrigation.
ARCO delivered the project with an accelerated schedule – 6 months from the start of footings to the final completion.
