Lithko & Duke Realty partnered to build this large distribution center in the Rickenbacker Global Logistics Park near Columbus, Ohio. Our scope included foundations, slab on grade, and site work. We also self-performed the installation of a reactive silicate hardener, Consolideck LS/CS. This dust proofer for concrete, supplied by White Cap, is sprayed down and then worked into the concrete using microfiber pads.
Due to the large scale of the project and the intense winter conditions, we broke down the site into 50,000 square feet sections and utilized draped plastic and heat. This allowed Lithko to complete the entire slab in just two months during the winter months.
Due to our long relationship with Duke, they looked to us to drive the schedule and we were able to complete the project successfully in 3 months. Amazon has since acquired the building, and in combination with one other Amazon built near Columbus, is expected to bring in 2,000 jobs to the area.
