L’Oreal

This is a 513,947 square foot regional distribution facility for L’Oreal USA’s Consumer Products Division (CPD), which consolidates three existing distribution centers around the country into one location. In addition, a 48,000 square foot distribution facility for L’Oreal USA’s Active Cosmetics Division (ACD) adjoins the CPD facility. Each facility was designed with expansion capabilities: an additional 410,400 square feet for CPD and 75,000 square feet for ACD.

Construction of each facility utilizes painted concrete tilt-wall and steel roof framing for the superstructure. Open work spaces, individual offices, conference rooms, break rooms and training rooms appear within each facility. CPD also includes men’s and women’s locker rooms with showers, plus a large outdoor break/seating area and separate receiving and shipping office areas. Finally, each facility includes its own tornado shelter room, which is designed to withstand all manner of disasters, including protecting the inhabitants from building collapse during earthquakes.
