Project Summary

FED EX WAREHOUSE

FedEx Corporation located a large warehouse to rent in southeast Edmonton. Before employees could move in, the building needed to be altered to meet company standards. In addition to housing a large sorting and processing facility that backed onto a 10-door loading bay, this building also needed to accommodate a small office for administrative staff.

As a large, multi-national corporation, FedEx provided Arrow with a series of prototype drawings to design from, ensuring the final product aligned with corporate branding and made the hand-off seamless. Arrow’s electrical team designed a lot of pre-wiring in preparation for FedEx’s team that completed the finishing touches of installing its specialized equipment. Clear planning and communication was crucial for all the connections to be placed in the correct locations.

To deliver, the majority Arrow’s attention was paid to the initial stages of planning and vetting the options presented from FedEx. By focusing on clear communication early on, Arrow recommended designs while making sure FedEx’s needs were met. The Arrow mechanical team took special care to monitor circulation and pressurization for proper ventilation within the warehouse space and to avoid the risk of noxious gas leaking into the office space
