Scope of Work:

In 2020 Wilhite Electric Inc. faced a construction challenge: build a 375,000-square-foot fulfillment center in 85 working days. So that’s what our crews did! For 4 months we had 30+ electricians working (5) 10 hours shifts M-F and a 8 hour shift on Saturdays. The DHL Fulfillment Center completed in May 2020. The exterior is made up of concrete tilt-up panels and the roof is a single-ply TPO membrane over an open web joist/metal deck roof structure. WEI performed extensive and complex electrical work: the building has two electrical services totaling 6,500 AMPs. The Center is fully climate-controlled and includes high-efficiency lighting controlled by photocells and motion sensors. The interior included 4 separate office build outs totaling 28,403 sq ft. and the building is backed up by a 1588 kva diesel generator. General Contractor Larry Doran SR.
