Limited Brands Distribution Center & Office
National retailer’s new distribution center and office building built on time and under budget.
Building a Distribution Facility for Several National Brands
Gilbane was responsible for the new distribution center and office building construction for Limited Brands. The 510,000-square-foot distribution center and mezzanine area of approximately 70,000 square feet is occupied by Bath and Body Works and Limited Brands shipping. Limited Brands shipping serves Victoria’s Secret and Lane Bryant facilities via overhead connectors between three facilities, which are all part of the project. The building structure consists of steel girder joists and frame with ballasted roof and ribbed metal siding.
The 120,000-square-foot office building features a full-serve kitchen with cafeteria, functioning stores for Bath and Body Works and Victoria’s Secret Fragrance Center to be used as mock-ups for new displays and products.
The project also included site work, on-site parking for 900 cars, truck parking and roads, and 90 loading docks for delivery and shipping.
Through schedule and budget management, Gilbane was able to build the Limited Brands distribution center and office building on-time and under budget. Gilbane developed an occupancy schedule that enabled over 400 employees to seamlessly relocate during a 3-day period. Gilbane prepared the scope of work for moving services, performed a matrix analysis and negotiated the contract on behalf of the owner. This allowed for no down-time during the transition, a mandate of the corporation.
