When FedEx needed to expand their operations in Independence, Kentucky, we helped them design the distribution hub.

As a result of a projected increase in package volume, FedEx’s ground services division required an expanded Northern Kentucky hub. This proposed facility would also provide relief to a nearby hub that was reaching its capacity.

To accommodate this need, FedEx retained Stantec to design an expansion over two phases that included the refurbishment of two existing load wings, a new load wing and associated transition wing, and the expansion of the unload and local city areas of the Hub. We expanded administrative support spaces and added a new security/entry building and a new human resources building. Work also included a vehicle maintenance garage addition, guard houses, salt barns, and 16 acres of new parking. Additional site/civil design work included relocating existing utilities, providing new stormwater management features, lighting, and grading.

Our team also performed a due diligence investigation for the new parking area which included wetland/stream delineation, sound, traffic, and archeological studies as well as a geotechnical investigation and preliminary site drawing preparation.

With this new hub operational in Independence, Kentucky, FedEx will be better able to serve their increased demand.

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

Andrew Jones, Senior Associate

Project management is not a separate function, but rather a piece of the whole design/construction process.

Michael Preston, Senior Associate

Project management is just like life—having a plan is crucial, but so is the ability to adjust those plans when situations change.
