Prologis last month finished its 240,900-square-foot warehouse at 70th Avenue East and 43rd Street East in Fife. Sierra Construction, the general contractor, used concrete tilt-up panels for the walls and wood sheathing over a steel structure with single-ply roofing on top. Site work included mass earthwork, building pre-load, a retention pond and underground utilities. Craft Architecture designed the project with steel canopies, horizontal steel elements and concrete reveals to accent the business entries. The project also was designed to meet LEED core/shell standards. The engineers were Shutler Consulting Engineers (structural) and Barghausen Consulting Engineers (civil). Subcontractors were Pivetta Brothers (earth/utilities), Panelized Structures (roof structure and steel erection), Kirby Electric, R&H Mechanical (HVAC), Miles Sand and Gravel (concrete and asphalt paving), Patriot Fire Protection, Masonry Maintenance (slab sealer) and State Mechanical (plumbing). Sierra’s team was led by senior account manager Kirk MacGowan, project manager Matt DeFranco, project engineer Nolan Vella and superintendent John Dahlman. Prologis is an owner, operator and developer of industrial real estate.
