Romulus Amazon Warehouse

Romulus, Michigan

The Challenge

PEA Group was called to design the site for the new 850,000-square-foot Amazon warehouse facility in Romulus. The 80-acre site required over 2,000 parking spaces for over 1,500 employees, 64 truck docks, and truck trailer parking for more than 200 trucks.

The Approach

Substantial site engineering was needed to accommodate the 1,500-foot-long building and truck circulation. The project involved the removal of a portion of a county drain and permitting with the MDEQ and EPA for wetland impacts. It also included the relocation of an ITC power line. During the project, our team interfaced with two consultants on traffic and roadway improvements to support the client. Throughout the design process, the high-profile tenant had to be kept confidential while an aggressive design and construction schedule was achieved.
