Construction firm Clayco recently broke ground on a 388,000-square-foot speculative industrial building in Glendale’s Loop 303 Corridor for developer Scannell Properties. The tilt-up distribution and e-commerce warehouse is Clayco’s first project with Scannell.
Planned on a 50-acre site, the building will span 388,000 square feet, provide 36-foot clear height, allow cross deck operations, and include an adjacent parking lot with 250 car spaces and 127 trailer stalls. Clayco was selected to implement design improvements engineered by the construction team for increased efficiency and support speed to market. In that vein, the firm will be installing offsite road improvements to provide infrastructure for the park’s end users.
Along with this project, Clayco will be preparing an adjacent building pad for a future twin building.
“At Clayco, we take pride in the fact that it is our responsibility to help our clients and their tenants bring goods closer to consumers and to their communities, faster and more efficiently,” said Anthony Johnson, president of Clayco’s industrial business unit. “Along these lines, we are excited to work with Scannell in this critical industrial market, and are laser-focused on speed to market, safety and quality.”
In collaboration with architect Ware Malcomb, Clayco is on track to complete the project by fall 2021 while adhering to strict health protocols in accordance with OSHA, the WHO and the CDC amid the pandemic.
