The CenterGate Business Park continued its expansion with a new fulfillment center for a large e-commerce company, bringing 1,500 jobs to the Tulsa community. The Lithko Tulsa Burg installed, 60,650 square feet of slab on grade, 168,000 square feet of paving, 47 tilt-up panels, 14,000 square feet of sidewalk, and drilled pier foundations.
During construction, we encountered undesirable weather conditions, including above average rainfall and below normal temperatures. This greatly impacted our tilt-up plan, due to the poor site conditions. By utilizing our daily planning processes, we worked with our customer and subcontractor to quickly change our approach. We originally planned to stand the panels from the crane’s path. Due to the ground circumstances, we decided to use crane matts and erected the panels from the top. Even with the inclement weather, our team successfully mitigated challenges and developed effective solutions to progress the project.
