Building one of the first LEED certified warehouse/distribution facilities in the state of California was a huge task for Alston Construction. Not only was the new Railroad project built on a Brownfield site, requiring asbestos removal and site decontamination, but the very small site (less than seven-acres) was receiving drainage from adjacent properties.
The two-story, 168,450-square-foot LEED Silver project, was one of the first buildings to use a reclaimed water system. Even with close attention paid to the surrounding environment and using state-of-the-art technology, Alston Construction was able to keep the project $850,000 under budget.
Sounds like this warehouse/distribution facility is a win for the environment and the owner!
