Project Status: In Progress

MAKE is providing full project management services, scheduling services, construction administration, and financial management for the construction of a new chemical warehouse and distribution center located on McClary Avenue in Abbotsford, BC. The 5.1 acre parcel is bound by the Southern Railway to the west, McClary Avenue to the south, a commercial development to the east and the Marshall Creek tributary to the north. There is also a BC Hydro substation to the northwest of the property.

The development includes a 75,000 sf building with warehousing, a rail spur and bulk storage for commodities. The project also includes an ethanol transload facility with a minimum storage capacity of 7,000 m3. This facility is being relocated from the North Vancouver Distribution Center (NVDC) as part of a separate project to increase Glycol storage and movement through that facility.
