The project, located on a 16-acre site, included a two-level store and warehouse and had an area of 270,000 sq. ft. with a parking garage that provides 1,500 parking spaces. Specifications on the building were so strict that the ‘IKEA blue’ paint colour for the exterior siding had to be sent to Sweden for approval. Structural steel changes also created some timing challenges for the Eastern team. We overcame them by splitting fabrication of the steel between two different manufacturers and also increasing the number of erection crews on-site.
