Darren was the Design Project Manager (architectural design services, sustainability consulting services, energy and daylight modeling, and related services) during construction for this new high bay warehouse and distribution centre for Frito-Lay Canada. The design included long span structural systems, extensive ventilation and energy efficient heating systems, industrial lighting systems, and working areas. The warehouse and distribution centre features a high bay (9144mm clear) mono-slope roof with tilt-up concrete wall panels. The distribution centre accommodates RSR (delivery van) as well as OTR (tractor trailer) vehicles with dock heights of 860mm and 1200mm respectively. The racking is a mixture of individual ‘pick’ type racking as well as pallet racking. The 1,000 m² single story office building accommodates administrative and sales functions including meeting, training, and seminar spaces.
