A leading grocery supplier headquartered in Texas, McLane Company already has 21 distribution centers that supply over 45,000 grocery stores across the country. Their 22nd location in Findlay, Ohio will bring hundreds of jobs to the region. It’s expected to open in spring 2016 and will serve stores in Ohio, Indiana, Michigan, Pennsylvania and West Virginia.
This project consisted of slab-on-grade structural slabs requiring anchor bolts and rebar placement, and 16,000 square feet of elevated structural deck. Each slab placement required placing more than 1,100 anchor bolts prior to slab casting. We had to specially engineer the rebar placement, as 6,000 bolts had to be drilled into the concrete after slab cast-in. The extreme floor and bolt tolerances also required Lithko to construct slabs in a domino pattern to control cracking, slab elevations and anchor bolts.
