Project consisting of a 64,000 SF tenant improvement for Clover Sonoma, a Northern California dairy production and distribution company. Project includes a 22,000 SF industrial warehouse, 34,000 SF cooler, and a 6,000 SF office space for warehouse and distribution support. The project was constructed concurrent with the shell construction for this 36 ft. high single story, 94,000 SF building. The tilt-up concrete shell was constructed over an uninsulated slab on grade, with open web steel roof framing and a TPO roof membrane. The tenant improvement portion of the project, with pallet racking, 13 dock bays with integrated door and vertical leveler controls, furnished offices and a 6,000 SF mezzanine was completed, occupied, and in full operation within three months of start date, overlapping the shell construction (closure pours and roofing) by 1-1/2 months in order to expedite completion schedule to meet tenant needs. Highlights of the project include the 34,000 SF, 25 ft. high cooler constructed as a “box within a box”. The cooler design temperature of 38 degrees Fahrenheit was enabled by a refrigeration system comprised of two 70-ton roof mounted refrigeration condensing units and twelve 12-ton indoor refrigeration evaporative coil units suspended from the roof structure. The new Cader Lane facility has allowed Clover Sonoma to consolidate several of their smaller dairy product warehousing locations in Northern California to just two locations, both within Petaluma city limits. The operational efficiency gained by this along with fewer truck trips and reduced transportation needs results in warehousing and distribution that is much more energy efficient and environmentally friendly.
