McMillan Pazdan Smith provided design services within a Design-Build method for the construction of a new logistics facility for Kimura, Inc. in Greenville County, SC. Located within the Matrix Business and Technology Park, the project will support the company’s first tier supply services to the local and regional automotive manufacturing industry.
The 208,000 SF through dock warehouse and distribution building is the first phase of a planned 300,000 SF project on the site. Fully insulated, load-bearing precast concrete wall panels and a steel frame structure provide the shell for the 28’ clear function of the storage facility.
Administrative offices and conference rooms located at the front of the building are accentuated with bold, corporate colors and storefront glazing for daylighting and will serve to visually identify the presence of Kimura, Inc. in the Matrix Park. The $11.5-million investment was successfully designed and built with an accelerated schedule of just nine months and is expected to generate an estimated 149 new jobs over the next several years.
