M+H was the architect for two new projects located in Gateway Commerce Center, in Edwardsville, Illinois. The projects include a new, single story, office/distribution building of approximately 1,158,000 SF and another of approximately 480,000 SF in area, both with Trammell Crow Company as manager and developer of the distribution park and Contegra as the general contractor.
P&G desired to consolidate various local facilities in the region and the Gateway Commerce Center campus provided the ideal solution. Architectural tenant finish services were provided by M+H for P&G, who occupies both Westway I and III buildings. Included in the program for the space were warehouse storage and racking, 41,000 SF of customized packaging and assembly, 20,000 SF of administrative office and support area, and a transportation office. Upgrades were made for P&G to create a C-TPAT facility which included adding a guard house, fencing, and security features to control access outside and inside the facility. The Westway III facility includes an MFL wall along with 2-hour fire rated walls, dividing the space so that no area exceeds 300,000 SF, per P&G standards. In addition, a battery charging area and a secured 90-day hazardous material area were provided.
