The Challenge

Anyone who builds in the Pittsburgh market knows of its topographical and seasonal construction challenges. Developing a regional industrial park takes highly skilled developers with a great level of flexibility to rectify the challenges of a given site with the constraints of a competitive national market.  

Wesex is pleased to be able to leverage its skills to add value to the development team by utilizing our core competencies: Architecture, Construction, Real Estate Solutions, and Technology.

The Solution

This project is part of Castlebrook Development’s Master Plan for Big Beaver Borough, where 3 or 4 new buildings will occupy the site totaling more than 1,000,000 square feet. The site is a great a place to situate a large industrial building proximate to the regional highway system within a market that does not have a current inventory of Class A Distribution/Industrial buildings.

This specific facility will come in right around 400,000 square feet and will be built using the Tilt-Up Construction method to accelerate the construction schedule. It is designed as flex space for warehouse or distribution tenants. The building will be modular, meaning that it can support 1-4 tenants depends on the preferred fit-out once tenants are defined.

Coordination at Inception

Prior to any drawing documentation, details such as drainage strategy were able to be evaluated to mitigate future coordination isssues.

The Challenge

A few recent challenges took place as we have worked through this project. Prior to construction, the site was annexed by a neighboring county. Wesex has also taken a few program changes and turned them into design and construction solutions.  

During the construction phase, it was deemed that a second floor would be added. We were able to exercise our BIM skills to quickly adapt this change and make it work.  Now the program includes a stunning mezzanine and second-floor space for CCL’s production team at the facility.  We have successfully dealt with multiple budget deviations and look forward to delivering this completed project to the owners this summer.  Building Information Modeling has truly saved the budget for this client allowing us to adapt to changes on the fly.

The Solution

Wesex is serving as Design-Builder for the new 78,000 square foot ground-up production facility for CCL Label in New Albany, Ohio. The new facility will include an open, modern office space, printing and production area, as well as warehouse and distribution space.

The new facility is being constructed using tilt-up concrete construction, will feature a second-floor mezzanine, and is located within the Beauty Park Campus of New Albany, Ohio. This endeavor unites the concept of locating all the links of the supply chain within shouting distance of the final assembler.

No Drawings Used in the Field

Our field team managed the entire project through a Data Vault on the site allowing for real time updates in the cloud.

Modeled Process Equipment

 All pieces were modeled to ensure fluid design of the space and appropriate flow & resource allocation.

BIM Staircases

The main office space has an unsupported curved poured-in-place concrete staircae.  BIM and VDC allowed us to construct fast and efficiently.
