The final phases of the building expansion are underway.
The subcontractors work is nearing completion. A fire protection system, consisting of a series of pipes and sprinklers suspended from the ceiling, has been installed. Installation of overhead heaters completes the HVAC work. Ceiling lights now fully illuminate the warehouse. The structural steel throughout the expansion has been painted a bright white and a safety yellow was painted on the columns and bollards. Trim work finishes off the two openings connecting the existing building to the new expansion. Tile installation is underway in the new restrooms.
Wall mounted lighting was added to the exterior of the expansion for safety and security. Black top was laid on the back of the expansion for increased parking and truck access. Next week, additional blacktop will be installed on both the east and west sides and the final landscape will take shape.
A certificate of occupancy was granted after a final building inspection. With that approval, the new racking system is being installed maximizing vertical space in the new expansion. This additional racking space will allow us to increase inventory levels and provide us with opportunities to add several new products, further diversifying our product and service offerings.
Brian Peters, Director of Operations at AmeriLux International, is very excited the expansion project is in its final phases of completion. “We are very pleased with the work done by the contractors, “Brian said. “They performed the work in a timely manner with the highest standards of workmanship. That being said, the expansion project will be completed ahead of schedule.”
