Target Distribution Center | Chambersburg, PA
from the client
“Nitterhouse erected approximately 21 panels a day for this massive new “L” shaped distribution center. The precast was of high quality and their installers performed a great job with minimal punch list. Completing the project exceeded our schedule and helped maintain a lead on our overall project.”
- Major distribution center for National retailer
- 1.3 million sq. ft. of Precast Concrete Components
- 245,789 SF – Load-Bearing Wall Panels
- 468 LF – Columns
- 20,903 LF – 6” Solid Interior Panels
- 235,989 SF – 8”, 9” & 10” Insulated Exterior Panels
- 880 SF – 6” Hollow Core Plank
- Project required 793 load-bearing wall panels, averaging 37 ft.-6 in. high by 12 ft. wide and 9 in. thick.
- Massive exterior panels, which varied between 8”, 9”, and 10” thick, weighed approximately 30 tons each.
- Since each panel would undergo its greatest stresses during shipping and erection, a unique 12-point pick system was designed to lift panels from transport trucks and rotate each one into position for erection.
- Approximately 21 panels were erected each day.
