SLGA Distribution Centre

This 158,000 square foot facility, located on 15 acres in Regina's Global Transportation Hub, will replace SLGA's current distribution facility, which has been operating beyond capacity due to the province's growing sales volumes.

The design features a one storey office with training space and a warehouse.  The warehouse is organized around a central circulation and staging spine with large windows at both ends allowing natural light to permeate the interior of the building.  The building has 16 loading bays in an enclosed truck concourse.  The warehouse consists of storage racking and a bottle pick tower.  The building features structural concrete floors, conventional steel frame, insulated metal panel walls, and a low slope, single-ply membrane roof.

A number of design studies were conducted to balance building footprint and height, storage capacity and pick fronts.  Optimization led to the warehouse being designed with 36 feet of clear height, allowing 6-high pallet racking.  This increased the requirements for the floor design in terms of weight capacity, levelness, and flatness.

The storage of beverage alcohol raised a number of other concerns related to fire supression design.  Detailed analysis of National Fire Code and NFPA requirements was necessary to develop a feasible solution.

The site design includes a front courtyard area and parking for staff and visitors.
