FedEx Distribution Network
As the demand for the delivery of goods to consumers increases, so does the requirement to expand the distribution network. As a result, FedEx expanded their distribution network with a new 250,000-sf, tilt-up panel facility in the Montgomery, AL, area.
Carmichael Engineering, a UES company, began providing geotechnical services for this project in the spring of 2021 with the construction of the project beginning in the fall of 2021 with a “fast track” schedule. Carmichael Engineering serviced this project with construction materials testing and geotechnical consulting services throughout the construction phase. The primary challenge for this project was the 275,000 cubic yards of “borrow” material that had to be hauled in from an off-site borrow pit within the five-month requirement during the late fall and early winter months. This required extended hours for hauling and placing fill material.
