Whole Foods

Cold Storage Distribution Center in Braselton, Georgia


ARCO built the South Region Distribution Center for Whole Foods in Braselton, GA.

The 110,000 SF facility consists of several temperature-controlled rooms, including a -10° F freezer, 28° F meat cooler, 34° F dry produce room, 34° F wet produce room, 55° F dry produce room, 55° F cooler, 38° F cold dock, 75° F dry bulk room and 4 banana ripening rooms. The facility uses an ammonia refrigeration system.

To reduce the environmental impact, ARCO incorporated energy-efficient finishes such as waterless urinals, motion sensing fixtures, a solar water heater and a rainwater harvesting system for irrigation.

ARCO delivered the project with an accelerated schedule – 6 months from the start of footings to the final completion.

“It’s great to see developers, subcontractors and ARCO’s team all come together to efficiently collaborate to complete buildings from the ground up. With our team effort and well-rounded knowledge, our clients always know they’re receiving the best possible product.”
