October 24, 2016

Scott J. Hoppa, Senior Vice President of McShane Construction Company’s Southeast Region, is pleased to announce that the firm has been selected to provide the comprehensive construction services for a new cold storage and beverage distribution facility on behalf of Adams Beverages, Inc.

The 71,820 square foot build-to-suit is under construction on a 12.5‑acre parcel at 2800 Wyndham Industrial Boulevard in Opelika, Alabama, conveniently located just one mile away from Interstate 85.  McShane Construction broke ground in August with final completion scheduled for Second Quarter 2017.

Established in 1937, Adams Beverages, Inc. is a family owned and operated wholesaler of Anheuser-Busch. The continued growth and success of the firm has necessitated a larger and more contemporary facility to house its beer and non-alcoholic beverage distribution operation in the State of Alabama.

Designed to accommodate future expansion, the build-to-suit will feature 10 truck docks, a side bay loading area accommodating two trucks, and 61,220 square feet of 26′ clear warehouse space. A 3,605 square foot walk-in/drive-in cooler area will also be incorporated within the warehouse. Business operations will benefit from a 10,600 square foot fully featured office component with modern open work spaces, private offices, conference and hospitality rooms.

McShane Construction will complete the exterior of the office with elegant masonry cladding while the warehouse will boast a painted tilt wall finish. The firm will also complete the sitework for the project including landscaping, sidewalks, truck courts, and paved parking for 79 vehicles.

“The Adams Beverages assignment requires a skilled team of construction professionals with a depth of experience with beverage distribution facilities,” remarked Hoppa. “We look forward to applying our proficiency in constructing this product type to deliver a facility that will maximize efficiencies and support our client’s current and future needs.”

HDA Architects is serving as the project architect while Gabriel Project Management, LLC is providing the program management services for this build-to-suit assignment.
