Project Description: 

The Austin Company provided an array of design and engineering services for FedEx Ground distribution hubs and warehouses located across the Midwest. Austin’s project history and in-depth understanding of FedEx Ground’s operations led to an opportunity to work with FedEx Ground and expand the Distribution Hub in Dallas, Texas. The scope of the project consisted of expanding the load wing, local city warehouse, administrative offices and site modifications, which included yard expansion. Increased packaging demand in Dallas led to the expansion project.

The scope of the project required Austin to procure the services of a local civil engineer to provide the construction documents required for the site modifications and assist Austin’s Project Manager during meetings with local governing authorities. At the request of the FedEx Ground, 30%, 75%, and 100% construction document review meetings were held confirming compliance to the project scope. The deliverables Austin provided were construction documents (drawings and specifications) and oversight of the coordination between the Construction Manager and FedEx Ground.

In addition to the design work, Austin coordinated efforts among Bluescope, FedEx Ground’s pre-engineered building supplier; the construction manager; material handling vendor and FedEx Ground Project Manager for utility needs, interference and constructability issues. The hub remained in operation throughout the construction project, so Austin worked with FedEx Ground and the construction manager to develop phasing plans to coordinate construction activities around FedEx business operations.

Austin’s regional project experience, including understanding of local codes and regulations, customer-centric approach and previous experience engineering other FedEx Ground distribution center expansions allowed Austin to secure the engineering services for this expansion to the Dallas FedEx Ground Hub.
