Atkore International

The first LEED project for this company is a 515,000-SF office/warehouse/distribution center addition to an existing facility in Harvey, Illinois. The project is a design-build project delivered by Leopardo Companies. The client already had numerous design-build proposals for a metal building before coming to Leopardo. The new warehouse/distribution facility added

  • 515,000-SF to existing facility and incorporates the following:
  • 2,000-SF shipping office
  • 15,000-SF, two-story office addition
  • 33 drive-in truck bays including an interior depressed loading dock
  • 10,000-SF rail platform and associated rail spur
  • Site work included the installation of new main and connection of new water services, sanitary sewer service installation, installation of new curbs, sidewalks, storm sewers and street pavement, installation of landscape, traffic control, and removal of contaminated soil in building pad areas for utilities

In addition to presenting a proposal that met their requirements, we also presented a proposal for a superior pre-cast concrete building alternative that included the following additional benefits:

  • Reduced cost by 15%
  • Generated more square-footage on site
  • Better long-term value, durability and insurability

In addition, we presented a sustainability proposal that enabled Atkore International to achieve a LEED NC2.2 Gold rating while generating the following benefits for less than $1/SF premium:

  • Reduced energy costs by 24%
  • Created a more productive work environment for their employees
  • Offered a potential $300,000 energy tax credit
