Dollar Tree Distribution Center
In April 2017, Fortune 500 value retailer Dollar Tree selected a 122-acre site on Highway 13 in Warrensburg, MO as the home for its new $110 million, 1.2 million square foot distribution center. The sprawling 27-acre distribution center serves as a key facility in Dollar Tree’s regional supply chain and national logistics network. It is projected that this facility will manage up to 200 inbound and outbound trucks per day, and create 375 new jobs within the first three years.
To deliver the facility on time, Clancy & Theys, the construction manager for the new facility, looked to partner with a civil construction firm who could: provide a robust combination of local talent, equipment, and material resources; consistently deliver high-volume production; and had the available capacity to meet the rigorous speed-to-market schedule.

Scope of Work
ESS proposed an aggressive ten-hours-a-day, six-days-a-week, fast-track work plan that included a dedicated team of experienced operators and fleet of equipment capable of compacting 20,000 CY of soil per shift. The site experienced an unusually high-volume of rain through August, but the team continued to stay on schedule by consistently producing 25,000 CY/day (27,000 CY on peak days). At the continued pace, the project team completed the earthwork operations and turned over the building pad ahead of schedule. The final scope of the job details over 1 million cubic yards of mass grading, 129,308 square yards of asphalt paving, 30,000 square yards of concrete paving which includes 894 square feet of sidewalk, storm and sanitary sewers for a combined 23,990 linear feet. In addition, ESS managed erosion control, clearing/tree removal, strip site stockpiling, placement of 6″ aggregate base on the building pad, and respreading of topsoil.
