Airpark Warehouse Conversion

The airpark project started as a warehouse conversion into a barrel storage facility and over the course of a couple years grew into fully functional winery

Building a 26,000 square foot warehouse addition requires heavy reinforcing and very precise bolt placement. Careful attention to detail resulted in exacting bolt placements that far exceeded tolerances. Due to the high level of precision the erection of the building was completed several weeks ahead of schedule.

(L)Perimeter stem wall built to retaining wall spec to withstand possible forklift impact. (R)Close up of a spilt level wall: Poured monolithically finished upper level to receive the insulated wall panels and a 14 dropped haunch with dowels protruding to connect to the raised loading dock.

(L)Dual pump trucks racing to get the entire concrete pad placed before the sun rises. (R)Three days later the test cylinders proved the foundation was ready to receive the structural steel. (Stevens Concrete Inc. uses a proprietary fast setting high strength mix design to achieve fast turnaround on time sensitive projects)

(L)The crew pouring the floating structural slab/foundation of the loading dock. (R)Close up of the floor area surrounding the in-ground auger.

Close up of the stainless steel auger, bolted up and ready for installation. This auger measures over 90 feet from the motor housing to the right-angle incline discharge. (seen in the middle left of the picture).

(L)Close up of L-channel bull-nosing and weld-plate post bases; all the pieces were welded together in place to insure proper alignment. (R)While modern power equipment is used to place and finish the slab, hand finishing of the bull-nosing and the post bases is required to achieve a perfect seal.

A cast-in-place floor drain/ equipment line. A monolithically poured containment area with raised sidewalls and center floor drain for a barrel wash station.

The finish product ready for action.

All surfaces received a special epoxy coating to protect against corrosion and bacterial infestation. The flooring had colored sand treatment added to the epoxy to provide a slip resistant surface.

(L)Steel reinforcing for concrete paving in the receiving area and loading dock is laid in a grid, supported on dobbies, and ready for the morning pour. The large red rectangle in the back ground is an in-ground scale.
(R)The red tubes are cast -in-place sheaths for load transferring slip dowels.

A close up of the scale; a double layer of non-leaching paper insures that the scale stays clean and contaminate free during the pour.

What a concrete pour looks like at 3:30 am. Starting early to beat the summer heat means you are finished before noon.

(L)Prefabricated cast-in-place drains ready for concrete. (R)View of the drains locked in, hangers removed and ready slab encapsulation.

Overhead view of the finished work area.

The front entrance was softened by strategically located planters, raised flower beds, and river stone drainage. The area in front of the wall is being reserved for a work of art currently in commission.

(L)ADA parking and access. (R)Front entry as seen from the lobby. The washed aggregate walkways and trowel-and-broom curbs and planter walls is a continuing theme for the public areas of the facility.
