CenterPoint Properties provides modern logistics solutions for their clients through the development and management of industrial property along with related rail, road, and port infrastructure. On behalf of their client Friant & Associates, CenterPoint contracted with Evans for the design/build construction of a new production and warehouse facility. The building is located within CenterPoint’s Suffolk Intermodal Center, a strategically selected site due to its proximity to the Port of Virginia.

The 357,000 SF facility is constructed of a conventional steel frame and concrete tilt-up wall panels covered with a mechanically fastened TPO membrane and standing seam metal roof system. The building is wrapped in brick and EIFS and protected by a fully sprinklered ESFR system. The production/warehouse areas encompass 347,000 SF with the remaining space used for office and administrative functions. The building features heating/exhaust air systems, motion sensor lighting, and state-of-the-art computer numerical controlled machinery. Scope of work included design/build services, complete shell building construction, tenant build-out, and a comprehensive site work package. This facility now serves as Friant & Associates east coast hub, where they fabricate and distribute customizable high-end office furniture.
