Macy’s Fulfillment Center
Macy’s Fulfillment Center in Owasso is a state-of-the-art, direct-to-customer fulfillment center that helps the retailer meet rapid growth of ecommerce and direct-to-customer shipping, as well as provide better support for existing retail stores.
The 2,100,000-square-foot facility includes a 1,300,000-square-foot pad and an 800,000-square-foot mezzanine space including multi-level work platforms, pick modules, and the latest in order fulfillment technology and distribution equipment. The building is a concrete tilt-up structure with a 36-foot clear height throughout, while panel heights reach over 45 feet. The facility itself sits on a 72-acre site, and includes, steel joists, joist girders, steel columns, and a steel deck.
Within the facility sits a 300,000-square-foot, three-tier racking system. The facility is divided into four main sections, including office space, an in-bound freight area, material handling, and racking. It is served by 12.2KV of power with a backup generator for life safety.
The project posed a variety of challenges. In the course of twelve months, a greenfield site with geological challenges was transformed to a bustling distribution center. Additionally, Oklahoma experienced one of its wettest years on record. The construction team modified the project sequences on a daily basis to combat the weather while maintaining a fast-track schedule. The team also provided significant preconstruction services, participating in the selection process, attending meetings with city officials, and analyzing specific sites for construction feasibility.
