Project Description

Tomlinson was engaged as the subcontractor for the site development of the largest Amazon fulfillment centre in Canada. The facility has the capacity of handling over 100,000 packages daily. A gross constructed floor area over of 2.8 million square feet (2,800,000 sq.ft.). The 5-storey building and parking areas cover approximately 23.5 hectares. In just a matter of months, the land was transformed from greenfield to a bustling construction site.Tomlinson Ready Mix supplied a staggering amount of concrete to Broccolini Construction. The supply and delivery came from three concrete plants in the amount of 104636.05 cubic yards (80,000 m3) or 7,824 loads. As a visual, this would be equivalent to filling 20 Olympic-sized swimming pools.
