Renier Construction Begins New Buildings for Dayton Freight
Dayton Freight Lines and Renier Construction Begin 18th Design-Build Project Together
Renier Construction recently initiated the construction of two new buildings in St. Peters, Missouri for Dayton Freight Lines. The new structures – a terminal building and a maintenance facility – are located on a 20-acre site within Premier 370 Park. The new facilities expand Dayton Freight Lines’ capacity to serve current and additional clients.
The 45,300-square-foot cross-dock terminal building includes a 38,400 S.F warehouse space with 72 dock doors. The cross-dock design allows freight to be received on one side of the building, broken down into smaller shipments and reloaded for shipment to specific stores. The 6,900-square-foot, two-story office space contains the dispatch area and administrative offices.
A separate 14,500-square-foot maintenance building is designed to allow mechanics to work on both the tractor and trailer simultaneously. The maintenance facility includes three trailer bays, four tractor bays, two fuel bays, and parts and tool storage.
The building features concrete wall panels, standing seam roof, high efficiency lighting, motion sensors for lights, and LED lighting in the parking lot. Because the buildings are located on a former riverbed and a few miles from a fault line, structural engineers used seismic information to design foundation structures for the unusual site conditions.
This is the 18th design-build project on which Renier Construction has partnered with Dayton Freight Lines. Renier has completed other projects for Dayton Freight in Indiana, Kentucky, Ohio, Michigan, Missouri, Wisconsin and Illinois.
Tom Cronin, president of Dayton Freight Lines, said, “We are pleased to continue our design-build partnership with Renier Construction on this important expansion project for Dayton Freight Lines. Renier shares our commitment to delivering excellent value for customers and continuous improvement.”
