Officials break ground for the new TTI facility in Fort Worth, Texas.
Bob Moore Construction has broken ground on the new 610,000 sq. ft. (185,928 sq m) distribution center for TTI Inc. in Fort Worth's Mercantile Center Business Park.
In June, TTI celebrated the beginning of its new building's construction with a groundbreaking ceremony. Participating in the ceremony were members of the leadership teams of TTI and Bob Moore Construction, including Paul Andrews, TTI CEO, and Ed McGuire, president of Bob Moore Construction.
The new TTI facility will house the company's North American warehouse, assembly, and distribution facilities. The space will feature an extensive picking system with conveyors, pick modules, racking systems and a three-level carousel platform.
The building will provide space for office and employee facilities and will include a fitness/exercise room and multiple break areas.
The new building will be built with tilt-up construction. The entire facility, including the distribution area, will be heated and air-conditioned by a central plant to maintain consistent temperature throughout the building.
Surrounding the facility will be extensive paving for truck lanes and courts, and 500 employee parking spaces, with a stacked block retaining wall along the north side of the property.
Bob Moore Construction's selection to build the TTI facility follows successful projects the general contractor delivered for Mouser Electronics, a subsidiary of TTI. The expansion of Mouser's headquarters in Mansfield earned Bob Moore Construction regional and state awards from the Association of General Contractors of America.
“Our team with Bob Moore Construction is very excited to build the new TTI facility,” said McGuire. “Every element of this building is optimized for top quality, newest technology and maximum efficiency. When this project is finished, TTI will have one of the most technologically advanced distribution centers in North Texas.”
