ARCO Murray Completes New FedEx Ground Home Delivery
Tampa, FL – ARCO Murray Construction Company announced today the completion of a 175,000 square foot industrial renovation for FedEx Ground Home Delivery on West Knollwood Road in Tampa, Florida.
Converted from a cigar distribution center, the West Knollwood location is the largest FedEx Ground Home Delivery site in the United States with a capacity of more than 100 FedEx vans. The facility includes a state-of-the-art automated scanning and sorting system, making it one of the most efficient in the FedEx portfolio.
The complex construction consisted of removing a two-story 10,000 square foot mezzanine and retrofitting the existing building to support the weight of the roof without interrupting the mainstream construction. It also included the demolition of a 7,000 square foot walk-in humidor which was transformed into the office and maintenance space for the new facility.
“Tampa Bay is growing into a logistics hub with the addition of retail and industrial warehouses and the country’s best distribution centers,” said Gavin Wanstreet, ARCO Murray project manager. “The renovation of the FedEx Ground Home Delivery center was an interesting challenge and I’m pleased we were able to retain a part of our community’s history as a cigar city while building a facility that will serve FedEx for decades.”
