The second distribution facility of its type in Michigan to use robotics technology

Located a short drive outside of downtown Detroit, a leading e-commerce retailer will occupy a distribution campus that will be home to nearly four million-square-feet of warehouse/logistics facilities and house at least 1,500 full- and part-time workers. This location will be the first site nationally to accommodate both a fulfillment center and a last-mile delivery station.

Our job? We’re providing integrated architectural, structural, mechanical, electrical, and plumbing engineering services to design both facilities beginning with the owner’s concept template. This 5.5 level fulfillment center will include product storage and retrieval space, sortation process space, a main office, maintenance shop, shipping/receiving area, and remote break and washroom facilities. It will house state-of-the-art warehousing and sortation equipment and will operate 24/7, 365 days a year. The 200,000 square-foot (18,580 square-metre) delivery station will house office spaces and a warehouse to support material handling equipment associated with the last mile delivery of e-commerce packages.

During construction, Stantec will provide construction administration services including design clarifications, submittal reviews, attendance at weekly construction meetings, and monthly site visits to verify for the owner that the work is being performed as indicated.

In my mind, the success of a project begins and ends with a question. Did we enhance the mission of our client?

We are all designers and practitioners with an intense desire to provide human-centered solutions for our clients.
