The Austin Company provided design and engineering services for a 33,000 SF expansion of the FedEx Ground Syracuse Distribution Hub. 

Project Description: 

The Austin Company provided design and engineering services for a 33,000 SF expansion of the FedEx Ground Syracuse Distribution Hub. The expansion project included:

  •  Expansion of the unload and local city distribution areas 
  •  Demolition of the existing areas required for the expansion 
  •  Relocation of existing utility lines within the expansion footprint
  •  Removal and relocation of existing modular docks 
  •  Relocation of interior cages 
  •  1,800 SF expansion of local city/CPC offices 
  •  Parking lot expansion 
  •  Asphalt pavement expansion 
  •  New 1,000 SF remote salt storage building 
  •  All associated sitework

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.
