Hartford Distributors (HDI), one of the largest distributors of Anheuser-Busch products in Connecticut merged with Franklin Distributors to expand into the micro-brewing market. To support this new division, Newfield Construction, as Design/Builder completed a 70,000 square foot beer warehouse and distribution center. The new building enjoys high-efficiency refrigeration and lighting equipment, 10 loading docks and a 10,000 square foot cooler. An automated inventory control and guided picking system creates efficiency of operation. This automated system works with high-bay racking systems and requires specific Floor Flatness so that it operates properly. Extensive site work, truck and car parking areas complete the new project. Newfield also upgraded environmental controls in the existing warehouse to meet Anheuser-Busch product specifications for temperature control.
