Comparative Building Costs: Warehouse/Office Facilities

Facility management cost trends

Warehouse and Corporate Headquarters

The design for this facility called for 50,000 square feet of office space and an 80,000-square-foot distribution warehouse. The project had a deadline of 12 months. The exteriors of both the two-level office component and the warehouse used 28-foot by 31-foot tilt-up concrete panels. Joints and reveals are the same across both exteriors but the office panels have 24-foot wide openings for windows. The exterior walls were poured and erected in less than four weeks. The office lobby entrance, which faces an interstate highway, is a glass-enclosed, two-story cylinder with mullionless glass and curved stainless steel bands.

 

Warehouse Distribution Center

This 250,000-square-foot, one-story, cross-dock warehouse distribution center is located on a cornerstone parcel of a major business center. It includes 10,000 square feet of office space. The challenge was to create a facade that would be both appealing and economical. Precast concrete provided a solution with cantilevered panels above reflective glazed curtainwall at the corner entrance. The panels are bearing walls that carry the roof joists and girders. The roof is EPDM membrane. The interior of the building has a 30-foot clear height, structural steel frame with insulated gypsum walls, metal doors and frames, and resilient flooring.
