KIMBERLY CLARK WAREHOUSE ADDITION
Total Size: 264,000 square feet
Duration: 7 months
Location: Ogden, UT
This project is a 264,000 square foot dry goods warehouse addition to the existing Kimberly Clark manufacturing plant in Ogden, Utah. The new warehouse will be contiguous to an existing smaller warehouse and includes two new openings into the wall between the existing and new space. The construction of the new space is structural steel framing and conventional spread footings. Additionally there are tilt-up concrete walls throughout the shipping and receiving docks. The construction of the new warehouse is structural steel framing on conventional spread footings and continuous footings and stem walls at the perimeter walls, with tilt-up concrete walls at the dock positions. The roof structure is steel open web joists and girders with a column spacing of 58’ each way. The roof membrane is a Sarnafil .48 mil single ply membrane with R20 rigid insulation. Exterior wall panels are 2” thick horizontal insulated metal sandwich panels. The docks are sheltered by a 10’ overhead facia structure that is an extension of the new roof line.
Inside the warehouse is a two level office area with about 3,000 sf on each level. This area will include electrical equipment rooms and a generator room, as well as offices, meeting rooms, restrooms, and truckers lounge. The warehouse floor is a Kalman SC floor, which will minimize floor joints (eliminating over 5 miles of joints). The interior columns of the structure are painted and the underside of the roof deck and trusses were left with factory finish, however welds will be touched-up. The site work includes relocation of the main plant fire loop, storm sewer, and domestic water as they currently run through the area of the new building. Site also includes additional roads, dock aprons, grass and irrigation on all space unoccupied by pavement or building.
