Litchfield, NH SDS Realty, LKQ Logistics and Dacon Corp. commenced construction of a 36,232 s/f high-bay logistics center located on a 13-acre site at 476 Charles Bancroft Hwy.
SDS Realty, a Seattle-based developer, sought Dacon’s design/build process to optimize costs and execution time. LKQ Logistics – a Fortune 500 company spanning 16 countries – is one of the nation’s largest national providers of aftermarket collision parts. Dacon is overseeing the design, pricing, engineering, permitting and construction services of this unique logistics center which possesses two design facets atypical of logistics buildings.
First, a 40-foot clear stud height maximizes space efficiency by enabling greater storage on a small footprint. Additionally the building is serviced by 20 loading docks – one for every 1,800 s/f – which is uncommon for a building of this size. The building’s exterior walls are single-skin panel over a conventional steel frame with joist and girder roof structure.
This building will replace LKQ’s existing leased location in Londonderry and is the second LKQ affiliated project for Dacon having designed and built a 120,000 s/f distribution center in Miles Standish Industrial Park in Taunton, Mass.
Anticipated completion date is February 2019.
