Dacon Constructs LEED-Certified High-Bay Logistics Center

Londonderry, NH – Dacon was hired by Prologis, a national developer of distribution centers and industrial properties, as the design-builder for a 614,240sf LEED-certified high-bay logistics center located at 52 Pettengill Road, adjacent to the Manchester-Boston Regional Airport in Londonderry.

This conventional steel and precast concrete panel building is one of the largest modern single-story industrial buildings ever built in the state of New Hampshire. The building structure will cover over 14 acres of office, assembly, storage, warehouse, and distribution space. The total cubic area under roof is 22.2 million cubic feet, using a .60 mechanically fastened EPDM roof.

The building has a six-inch unreinforced concrete slab and is protected by an ESFR sprinkler system, is heated by rooftop gas-fired heating units and is illuminated by T5HO fluorescent lamps and is serviced by 56 tailboard docks. The building has 24,000sf of mezzanine office area and will be surrounded by 400 parking spaces within a fully landscaped site as well as 100 truck/trailer storage capacity.

The building tenant is a third-party national logistics firm that will operate the distribution center for a Fortune 500 manufacturer of aircraft engines, parts, and kits.

Construction of this design-build project began in early July 2014 and is scheduled for occupancy on a phased basis commencing February 2015.
