The Ditch Witch facility is a 13,000 SF construction equipment dealership. The Pre-Engineered Metal Building (PEMB) consists of a structural steel framing system that supports a variety of roofing systems and exterior wall applications. The structure allows for a clearspan interior that might not otherwise be possible with a conventional structure, providing far more flexibility to the interior layout.
The owner wanted to start the project immediately and be completed in 9 months but the lead time on the PEMB was 5 months. To utilize the wait time efficiently, CDI began construction and developed the site work (site utilities, curb, asphalt, site concrete and irrigation) and building concrete. Once the PEMB was delivered, CDI was able to erect the building with everything around it completed minus landscaping. The building was turned over to the owner over 1 month earlier than originally scheduled.
