Project Type: General Construction
The Mathis Brothers Furniture Showroom and Warehouse has long been the premier identifiable name in Northeastern Oklahoma for quality home furnishings. Fleming Construction was honored to build their original 200,000 square-foot showroom and warehouse, and we were honored again, ten years later, when we were asked to provide the construction services for their 103,000 square-foot addition. The addition was designed with 38-foot clear height, enabled by 44- to 50-foot tall concrete tilt wall panels designed to accommodate eave storage. The warehouse expansion features 5 1/2 miles of in-rack fire suppression. To tie the existing facility to the new, and to provide a clear path between the buildings, we removed 2,000 square feet of concrete structural tilt wall. The scope of work included the seamless removal and reinstallation of nine rows of floor-to-ceiling racking from the existing warehouse to the new facility, with no interruption to daily operations.
