The industrial market is booming across the Midwest. This isn’t surprising. The Midwest’s central location makes it ideal for companies that need to ship products to as many people as quickly as possible.
Being in the center of the country means that the Midwest has become a favored spot for companies opening new distribution centers and warehouses.
The latest example? Kadean Construction was recently awarded a $17.7 million contract by developer Trammell Crow Company to build a 542,640-square-foot warehouse/distribution building at the KCI Intermodal BusinessCentre in Kansas City, Missouri.
The building, to be known as LogisticsCentre V, will be a cross-dock facility with three separate storefront entrances for multiple tenants.
Kadean is no stranger to this business park. The company has already built LogisticsCentre II, III and IV at the 687-acre distribution and logistics park located adjacent to Kansas City International Airport.
Austin Christensen, vice president of Kadean, said, in a statement, that LogisticsCentre V will feature a structural steel frame, concrete tilt-up walls, 7-inch-thick reinforced concrete floor and 36-foot clear-height ceiling.
The building will include 98 dock positions with 132 tractor and 324 car-parking stalls.
Construction on this latest facility is expected to be done by March of 2020. M+H Architects is the architect for the project. Stock & Associates is providing the civil engineering on the project.
Since entering the Kansas City market in 2015, Kadean has completed 15 projects exceeding $75 million in total revenue. This includes more than 1.5 million square feet of industrial buildings at the KCI Intermodeal BusinessCentre.
