Target Freezer Warehouse
Target’s 450,000-square-foot food distribution center in West Jefferson, Ohio employs 150 people who handle produce as well as refrigerated, frozen and packaged foods. Building a warehouse in central Ohio was part of the company’s move to add fresh foods to hundreds of stores around the country, starting in 2010.
Working with Ryan Companies, Lithko overcame a number of challenges. Anchor bolt placements were complex, the slab required meeting a 5035 floor tolerance without the aid of a laser screed (we used a crank screed), the temperature was reduced near the end of the project (increasing safety hazards), and extensive coordination was required to work around the refrigeration contractor.
