Target Fulfillment Center
The Target Fulfillment Center (formerly the Rita Falcon Project), is a 967,000 sf hi-tech distribution center designed to handle Target’s online ordering distribution in Tucson, Arizona. The facility has 110 truck bays and parking for an additional 200 trucks. It was constructed on an 80-acre site which was part of the 134-acre Interstate Commerce Center, which was platted along with this project.
The project was delivered under a highly expedited schedule through a design-build contract with Archer Western Contractors. EEC provided site design and platting as well as other services such as offsite roadway design on Rita Road, landscape architecture, hydrologic analysis, storm water pollution prevention plan, septic system design, surveying services and construction observation.
As lead site design consultant, EEC also oversaw the development of traffic impact analysis, street lighting and signalized intersection design. The final project included over a mile ofstorm drain and eight detention basins.
