Plumb Supply Company

Nelson Construction & Development started this 33,600 square foot warehouse expansion in September of 2006 and completed the project in January of 2007. Plumb Supply warehouse is a precast structure that in five months was constructed in phases to accomdate the owners’ ongoing operations, including the use of their new storage area just months after construction began.

The project consisted of ten foot wide by thirteen foot tall structural precast concrete wall panels and structural steel with interior spans of forty feet. The specialized dock equipment and “in floor” heating were interesting aspects in the construction.

Other aspects of the project included a specialized floor hardener for the interior concrete slab, office and restrooms at the receiving area, and the new storage area.
