CMC was selected for the design and construction of a new 76,000 square foot distribution facility located in Conklin, NY that will be dedicated to Darden Direct Distribution.
The facility has nearly 40,000 square feet of refrigerated space that is serviced by a central ammonia refrigeration system. CMC and Maines secured several utility company rebates related to the energy efficient design of the refrigeration system and facility lighting.
To further improve upon the energy efficiency of the facility, all twelve shipping and receiving doors were equipped with vertical dock levelers. To maximize the operational efficiency of the warehouse, CMC performed a detailed analysis of the inventory and designed a complete racking system. In 2011, CMC returned to an additional 24,000 SF to the facility. Once again, CMC performed a material handling analysis to set the sizing of the new dry and refrigerated space.
