Elm East recently completed work on an ELM/ARCO design build 607,486 sq/ft cross dock distribution warehouse. The work included 2 – 3000A 480/277V services setup to allow for 5 separately metered tenants as well as an owner metered house power distribution system to serve site lighting, exterior wall packs, common areas/amenities. Elm was responsible for the design and installation of all power, lighting and life safety systems. The facility contains 312 led highbay fixtures to provide 25FC lighting throughout the interior of the building as well as 58 site light poles and 40 exterior wall packs to achieve the desired exterior illumination. The facility will hit the market with 65 fully functional hydraulic dock levelers with provisions to be able to expand and provide 62 more dock locations. Work was completed collaboratively between the Elm East and home office to be able to meet the projects deadline and unique obstacles.

PC Hall Kitchen – Columbia Construction – Ken’s Foods – Marlborough, MA

Keeping the momentum rolling from Uxbridge, Elm began work in the late fall on a new packaging mezzanine as well as a new cup room (a cup room is where they make the dipping sauces). The team is currently in the home stretch, buttoning up lights and getting ready to turn these rooms over to our friends at Ken’s foods. The work of this project was plan and spec and included the installation of new distribution equipment on top of the new cup room as well as the packaging mezzanine, new lighting in both areas as well as fire alarm updates. The team was able to meet the clients schedule even though the general contractor created several project delays that hindered Elm’s ability to get in and “blast it out” as we like to say in the field. All in all this was a successful project and as usual – Elm exceeded expectations.
