How a Phoenix industrial building was built to support a giant printing press
Stevens-Leinweber Construction recently completed a tenant improvement build out for Phoenix Logistics Center Two, a new industrial facility located at the southeast corner of 91st Avenue and Buckeye Road.
The building totals 481,600 square feet and will be occupied by Atlanta-based Georgia Pacific, a corrugated boxes and packaging manufacturer, and Toledo, Ohio-based Owens Corning, which develops insulation, roofing and fiberglass composites.
To support Georgia Pacific's operations in the facility, Phoenix-based Stevens-Leinweber provided a custom build out for 160,000 square feet in the facility for Georgia Pacific's HP PageWide T1190 Press, one of the largest high-volume digital pre-print presses for corrugated packaging.
The construction firm built a specialized foundation that required 163 piers drilled 15-feet deep to support a thick concrete foundation with heavy rebar. Stevels-Leinweber also added 7,200 amps of power specifically to support the tenant improvement for Georgia Pacific as well as a heavy-duty HVAC package installment to mitigate the high levels of heat and air pressure from the printer.
