Portfolio — Airborne Express
The Airborne Express distribution facility, located north of Raleigh, provides a state-of-the-art facility for the delivery of goods being transported by Airborne Express. Engineers at Fluhrer Reed used concrete tilt-panels and steel bar joists to aide in the speed and ease of construction. Special care was taken in the design and detailing of the slab on grade for the facility. Frequent fork-lift traffic and areas with higher than typical floor loading were considered when recommending a concrete slab design. To support the client’s operations, the rear concrete tilt-panels had to be specifically engineered. Due to the requirement of multiple openings in the rear of the building, special elevations were created showing the special reinforcing required at each opening.
