Project OverviewDescripción del proyecto
The Amazon Fulfillment Center serves as a key facility in the e-commerce giant’s Midwest regional supply chain. The Amazon Fulfillment Center is a $300 million, 2.3 million square foot distribution center, located on a 133-acre site at I-70 and Turner Diagonal in Kansas City, Kansas. As the project’s construction manager, Clayco, Inc. partnered with Emery Sapp & Sons to provide a speed-to-market civil solution for Amazon. The Emery Sapp & Sons team was challenged with engineering modifications, inclement weather conditions, and rigorous schedule and production level requirements. ESS developed an unparalleled combination of resources, technology, and production innovations to overcome such challenges.
After the original contract was signed, Amazon requested additional paving sections to accommodate their logistics and trucking needs and modified the design of the retaining walls. ESS’ contract was adjusted to reflect the changes in scope requested by both the tenant and the engineer. Within a span of 15 months, ESS mobilized a full-stack fleet of equipment and an on-site batch plant, moved nearly 1.2 million cubic yards of earth, and paved more than 96,000 square yards of concrete pavement.
