CASE STUDY:

Amazon Sortation Facility

New Construction
Power & Lighting

General Contractor: Clayco

Project Size: 514,011 sq. ft.

Location: Kenosha, WI

Challenge: As Amazon prepared to expand in Kenosha, the build-out for their half-million square foot facility was on an especially aggressive and fast-spaced schedule. Roman was asked to complete the building's electrical work in record time.

Solution: Roman deployed a crew of up to 30 electricians to the jobsite, working seven day, 80-hour weeks. Meanwhile, we leveraged our prefabrication capabilities to manufacture systems and assemblies in the shop and quickly ship them to the job for installation.

"Roman really stepped up to the plate and got it done. They jumped through some big hoops to complete the work on time and get Amazon into their building. Their quality was wonderful and they're a very safety-conscious company. It was just a pleasure to work with Roman and we'll definitely hire them again."

John Biggart, Project Superintendent, Clayco

Additional Details: Roman powered the new building with three 3,000-amp services and lighted it with 600 high bay fixtures. The 40-foot high, one-story structure is completely air conditioned with 24 20-ton AC units on the roof, while site lighting is provided by over 100 fixtures. The vast interior of the building has no racks, but rather mechanized conveyors leading to 105 hydraulic docks around the perimeter of the building.
