Over One Million Square Foot Facility; LEED Silver Certified

ATLANTA (Sept. 7, 2017) – Ware Malcomb, an award-winning international design firm, today announced construction is complete on the new Medline Industries Inc. distribution center comprised of over one million square feet in Atlanta, Ga. Ware Malcomb provided architectural and interior design services for the project, which is one of many facilities completed based on a national prototype developed jointly by Medline and Ware Malcomb. Ware Malcomb has completed over 30+ projects nationally for Medline, which is the largest privately held manufacturer and distributor of healthcare supplies in the United States.

Medline Industries Inc.’s new build-to-suit, 1,069,200 square foot distribution center includes 1,042,622 square feet of warehouse space and 26,578 square feet of office space. A concrete tilt-up construction method was used, resulting in shorter lead times for the construction phase. Ware Malcomb employed a patterned reveal design that is unique to the tilt-up method. Constructed with load-bearing site-cast concrete panels with a clear height of 37 feet, the warehouse is fully racked and equipped with conveyors and automated storage systems. The facility also contains a temperature control room, 150+ dock doors and over 1,000 skylights. The facility has achieved LEED Silver certification from the U.S. Green Building Council.

“This impressive new facility reflects a new standard for Medline’s distribution centers across the United States,” said Michael Bennett, Principal at Ware Malcomb. “It was a privilege to work with Medline’s outstanding team on the interior and exterior design to ensure that it would meet the complex needs of the company now and in the future.”

The general contractor for the project was Alston Construction and the structural engineer was Smith/Roberts & Associates, Inc.

Ware Malcomb, which opened a new office in Atlanta last year, has completed over 50 projects throughout Georgia, most of them being located in the Metro Atlanta area.
