Big-D Construction and Freeport West has a relationship that spans 12 years. In 2016, Big-D Construction was hired to construct what would be the largest new warehouse and distribution facility in Salt Lake City.
Freeport West Landmark Building #14 is a nearly one million square-foot warehouse and distribution facility for Post Consumer Brands. Post Consumer Brands is a company that produces cereal brands that includes Honey Bunches of Oats, Pebbles, Great Grains, Post Shredded Wheat, and Honeycomb. The new facility will bring nearly 100 new jobs to the Salt Lake Valley.
The warehouse and distribution facility consists of slab-on-grade construction with a steel roof structure, TPO membrane roofing, skylights, curtain wall, painted exterior, loading docks with overhead doors, ESFR fire protection, mechanical and electrical systems. During construction, crews had to assemble the structural steel roof on the ground. The roof was then hoisted into position with a crane. Big-D also constructed a 6,000 square-foot office build out that includes restrooms, an employee break room, and a battery charging area.
