Uline is substantially expanding its Pleasant Prairie complex with the new W6 warehouse building, a 520,692 sq. ft. facility comparable to the W1 building that began the process in 2008. As with all Uline buildings, the W6 offers state-of-the-art cleanliness and lighting. Roman installed a 2500 amp service, 1,222 Cree high bay interior LED light fixtures, a 72 KW generator for emergency power and 87 building and pole-mounted LED exterior light fixtures. This is the first time Uline has used total LED lighting. The precast concrete building also features 38 battery chargers for the electric forklift trucks, and 95 dock doors with dock restraints and lights. In addition to lighting control and branch circuit panels, Roman installed power link panels with program breakers to turn on and off as needed. It gives the fire department the ability to control exhaust and supply fans when necessary, and offers Uline the ability to control lighting and fans with one panel. And because the panels have internet capability, Uline technicians can access each panel remotely to analyze potential problems.
