The Apparel Group

This 180,000 square foot tilt-wall office/distribution facility houses the regional headquarters for The Apparel Group. The layout of the two-story office is set such that conference rooms and executive offices are located towards the center of the building, thus allowing the open office areas to reside on the perimeter and natural light to illuminate the space through large windows.

The distribution center component has a specialized two-level conveyor system which required unique consideration when designing and constructing the facility. Building components such as the building structural system, lighting systems and fire protection were coordinated within the conveyor system for it to work with the distribution center’s overall flow and mechanics. An additional consideration was the building clear height, which was set such that this conveyor system could be expanded to a three level system in the future.
