Following demolition of the existing buildings, the Eberly & Associates team designed a new 120,000 s.f. last mile fulfillment center to meet the growing demand of online shoppers.

Civil Engineering services for four warehouse/distribution facilities totaling approximately 649,183 s.f. in City of Buford and Hall County, Georgia. Included in the civil engineering services was a USACE Individual Permit. The four buildings were leased prior to completion, so our team made revisions during construction to meet the tenants’ individual needs. We also included in the design parking and entry features to add flexibility to any future tenants needs. In addition to the industrial buildings, we provided services for four commercial plats that front the Friendship Distribution Center site. Our team worked with the contractor to mitigate groundwater issues discovered during construction.
We worked collaboratively with the owner and city to reduce community impact of the development. The development required permitting with multiple jurisdictions including the City of Buford and Hall County. As well as through Georgia EPD to disturb over 50 acres at one time and extensive erosion control construction administration was provided due to the property bordering Lake Lanier. Our services also included a DRI, offsite road improvements and design of a new public road that serves as the spine road into the site and allows for easier accessibility.
This new climate-controlled food distribution facility sits on a 79-acre parcel in Douglas County. The greenfield site required close coordination with the Georgia Environmental Protection Division and the United States Army Corps of Engineers.
