UPS Regional Hub
Completed in 2018, the UPS Regional Hub in Salt Lake City spans 863,100 square feet, features more than 300 inbound and outbound dock doors, and is capable of processing 69,000 packages every hour. Additionally, four to five outbound wings allow for the delivery vehicles to drive into the facility at a recessed level, parking in two densely packed rows across from exterior dock doors, facilitating local and regional distribution. Built on a 160-acre site, the facility also includes a truck maintenance facility, a truck wash building, a retail commerce building, and entrance/security port for trucks, as well as parking and an employee entrance building.
Overall, the ground-up UPS Mega Regional Hub is among the largest processing facilities in the UPS global package network, and the largest constructed in the past 30 years. In fact, the facility is four times the size of the existing processing center in Utah. This fully automated, state-of-the-art facility improves performance and increases capacity for growth in the ecommerce business in the region.
The project was completed via the design-build delivery method, enabling the project to be completed in 14 months on a fast-track schedule—which decreased the original schedule by over a year. It required significant MHE coordination, as well as expansive site work prior to construction. Upon its completion, the project received numerous design and construction awards.
