Representing the Valley’s continued industrial resurgence and evolution, Willmeng Construction broke ground on Wentworth West 80, an industrial spec building at 8001 W. Buckley Rd., on August 8. Totaling 379,828 square feet, the building will consist of a cross-dock warehouse and office space.
It’s another example of how older, antiquated industrial buildings are being re-imagined and transformed into state-of-the-art distribution and warehouse facilities to attract new tenants based on their evolving needs. Today’s new industrial facilities call for higher clear heights and ample power to support any potential automation needs and operations.
Developed by Wentworth Property Company and designed by Butler Design Group, Wentworth West 80 required demolishing an exciting concrete pad of an industrial site to make way for a modernized space that can meet today’s tenant needs. The cross-dock warehouse is designed with load bearing concrete tilt-up exterior walls and a steel joist and grinder/wood panelized roof system. In addition to 36-foot clear heights, the building also features an EFSR sprinkler system for high pile storage and SES services with a total of 4100 AMPS of power available.
Willmeng team members involved on the project included:
Dean Lutgen – Project Manager
Cody Phelan – Silo Leader
Andy Hindson – Superintendent
Phil Amezquita – Project Engineer
Renee Hurtado – Construction Administrator
