Growth between Castle Rock and Colorado Springs prompted UPS to expand and construct a new distribution center in Monument, Colorado. The nearly 100,000-square-foot facility was built on 16.9 acres just off Interstate 25, helping meet growing demand in the area.
Experienced industrial architect, Ware Malcomb, led the team of architects and engineers in designing the building containing 4,300 square feet of office space with a customer counter, 2-bay auto shop, heated/ventilated warehouse, plus a separate guard shack entry point. 360 Engineering designed the mechanical systems per UPS’s design guidelines and specifications, offering unique solutions when needed. The HVAC systems include constant volume RTUs, gas unit heaters, direct-fired heating and ventilation units, and a VRF for the guard shack. The plumbing systems include restrooms, janitor’s closets, trench drains, sand and oil interceptor, roof drains, and a compressed air system.
According to UPS.com, UPS employs more than 500,000 people in 220 countries and generated $97.3 billion in revenue last year. The company delivers 25.2 million packages daily; it has a fleet of more than 100,000 delivery and other vehicles and more than 500 owned and leased aircraft.
