Construction began in March of 2015 on a 38,000 square foot warehouse expansion of Alro Steel’s existing facility, increasing the total warehouse area to 250,000 square feet.
The addition consists of a pre engineered steel structure supported on a reinforced concrete foundation. The exterior walls of the addition use an 8’ tall strip of decorative industrial resistant masonry below panel rib metal siding. The warehouse addition was designed for full 20 ton overhead crane coverage. The exterior site and associated pavement was designed to facilitate operations for trucks and forklifts.
Careful planning and sequencing was required to keep the interface between the existing and new buildings watertight during construction. O’Harrow is coordinating activities with Alro Steel to minimize the impact of construction on Alro’s normal business activities.
The project is expected to be completed in the fall of 2015.
