The AvAir project consisted of two (2) concrete, tilt-up buildings, one totalling 92,500 square feet, including 20,000 square feet of Class A 2-story corporate office space with state-of-the-art LED lighting and controls, a glass elevator, and high-end floor finishes such as terrazzo. Build-out also included a Gym/Spa area consisting of a facility with a half-dozen equipment stations, a 7′-diameter in-ground spa, steam room, cold (chilled) shower and standard shower and locker areas. The remaining 72,500 square feet of warehouse included a structure with 30′ clear height, Early-Suppression, Fast-Response (ESFR) fire sprinkler system, evaporative coolers with central pumping station, and LED high-bay lighting. Also within the warehouse was a 72,000 square foot, 4-level catwalk storage rack system with LED lighting.

Building 2 totalled 69,700 square feet and potential for 20,000 square feet of 2-story office space with elevator. The remaining 49,700 square feet of warehouse was similar to Building 1, with a 30′ clear height structure and Early-Suppression, Fast-Response (ESFR) fire sprinkler system, evaporative coolers with central pumping station, and LED high-bay lighting. Also within the warehouse was a 20,000 square foot, 4-level catwalk storage rack system with LED lighting.

The two (2) buildings share a fire pump to serve the required fire protection systems in each building, and have a shared truck courtyard providing access to both buildings, each building with three (3) dock-high overhead doors and one (1) 20′ wide x 27′ high grade-level door. Building 1 has an additional three (3) dock-high doors and one (1) 20′ wide x 27′ high grade-level door on the east side of the building, allowing for drive-thru access for trucks with large parts to be off-loaded within the building.
