Nebraska Furniture Mart - Warehouse and Distribution Center
➥ Projects ➥ Nebraska Furniture Mart - Warehouse and Distribution Center
Nebraska Furniture Mart’s Warehouse and Distribution Center consolidates all furniture, electronics and appliance warehousing for the Omaha facility and serves as a distribution center for their store in Kansas City, Kansas. Working closely with consultants and experts in the fields of product handling, warehousing, worker safety, and several specialized construction disciplines, KHA and its team of engineers developed a truly state-of-the-art facility.
This 665,000 square foot building will be capable of receiving, transferring and delivering, and issuing over $1M of merchandise a day while retrieving products for customer pick-up at a rate over 300 orders per hour. The high-bay, narrow aisle racking system requires a super-flat floor to operate order-picking equipment. The project was constructed on a very tight site, with intense subgrade preperation work. The project was completed in phases over two years, so existing facilities could remain in use while the first phase of the project was being built. The project also includes construction of a city street, a new overhead connecting link, and a furniture repair and staging area at an adjacent building.
