Project Description

New Warehouse Buildings 341 & 344 Bluegrass Station Avon, Kentucky

Magna Engineers provided mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and fire protection design services for two new warehouses for the Department of Military Affairs.  The project is being constructed using the build-to-suit method, with Magna Engineers working directly for the Contractor, Brett Construction.

One of the warehouses is 240,000 SF with 303,000 SF gravel and 100,000 SF concrete storage areas. The second is 20,000 SF with 51,000 gravel and 29,000 concrete storage areas. Each building includes a finished area with offices and restrooms.

Each building include a 100% dry pipe fire suppression system.  The large building includes a fire protection loop and multiple risers.   HVAC includes packaged split systems for the office areas, and ventilation for the non-conditioned spaces, to provide required ventilation for vehicle exhaust, as well as summer cooling.

The electrical design includes a new 480/277V service to each building, including the primary connection and serving transformers.  Lighting design includes T5 high bay fluorescents throughout the warehouse, and occupancy controls throughout.  Extensive exterior lighting is provided at both buildings for exterior storage yards.  The design includes pre-wired communications cabling network back to MDF.
