PREMIER Design + Build Group, LLC has been selected by Bridge Development Partners to build a nearly half-million square foot industrial facility on Powerline Road in Pompano Beach. Composed of three buildings on 40.41 acres, the project will serve as a coastal hub for South Florida distributors and manufacturers.
“The city of Pompano Beach has been great to work with,” says PREMIER senior project manager Ytiel Lopez. “We’re always glad when we’re given the opportunity to work on projects that will bring more jobs to the local community.”
All three buildings will be constructed of tilt-up concrete slab, with 32’ clear heights, and will include exposed steel beam and storefront-glazed entrances with aluminum canopies and integrated gutters. The open-web steel girder and joist roof structure will feature a TPO roofing system with R-11 insulation and an ESFR fire suppression system. 1,600 amp main electrical service will ensure ample power for industrial operations.
Outside, the combination asphalt and concrete parking lot will offer 431 total parking spaces, as well as multiple dock positions at each building. Of the 138 total dock doors, 12 will be motorized (four per building). Buildings 1 & 2 will each comprise of 172,927 sq. ft. and 52 dock doors; Building 3 will comprise of 121,978 sq. ft. and 34 dock doors.
PREMIER has also been selected to manage the interior buildout for Building 1 for the project’s first tenant. The approximately 17,200 sq. ft. buildout includes ten mechanical dock levelers and provisions for 14 forklift battery charging stations and a conveyor system. Buildings 2 and 3 are designed to accommodate six and four tenants, respectively.
Lopez is overseeing the project for PREMIER along with project superintendent Dominic DiGrado. Bridge Development Partners is the developer. The Corrales Group Architects is providing architectural services. Engineering services are being provided by Nutting Engineers (geotechnical engineering), DDA Engineers (structural engineering), KAMM Consulting (mechanical, plumbing and electrical engineering) and Sun-Tech Engineering (civil engineering).
Craven Thompson & Associates are providing landscaping and irrigation services, including the development of two dry retention areas totaling two acres and one large 6.5 acre wet retention/lake/wetland area.
The project is expected to be completed by July 2019.
